great tambora...

By arlei gomez

from temple, texas

yes, typical tamboras from the Dominican Republic are made with goat skins, hand strung and fitted. They also start @ $650.00. This product can be adjusted by anyone and skins can be changed out as needed. Sound difference depends on experience of play. A good player can make a cooking pot sound great. This is a great product for the money.

super tambora for the price.......

By arlei gomez

from temple texas

yes typical dominican tamboras are made with goat skins, hand strung and fitted and start @ $650.00 so if your really picky about everything then fork over another $350.00 for that, these are out standing for the price and quality.

Pretty good, close but no cigar

By ELi Music

from Boston, MA (JP)

It's a nice looking drum. Very solid, and good weight to balance it. However, the heads don't quite do the job very well. The genuine ethnic tambora from Dominican Republic (DR) has goatskin for the heads, not cows skin (same heads being used for congas aka rawhide). It's takes a long time to get that high pitch slap when you're playing merengue. I give it a 4 since the heads aren't the same as the ethnic one. I would've it a solid 5 if the heads were to be from goatskin to get "that sound". Like I said in the title... close but no cigar!
