Traditional design with modern tuning.

Meinl Darbukas are made in the tradition of the original, esoteric goblet-shaped drums found in music from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Southern Asia. Meinl's darbuka drums are constructed from thin shells in various metals, each metal giving the different models their special timbre. The head is secured and tuned with external rings set close to the shell, in the Turkish-style. Light yet powerful, the darbukas have a deep full bass. They are well suited for high-pitched snapping sounds as well as a wide range of articulated "doum" and "tak" strokes.

These Turkish style hand drums feature fat lows and ringing highs with a wide range between.

  • Aluminum shell
    Synthetic head

    As reviewed by Through the Fire on 8/16/2011

    We have various drums and hand percussion instruments at home, but our 13yo son wanted something similar to a Djembe which he could then take on camping trips. Our current Djembe is an 18", which is too big and a touch too fragile for a youth's camping trip. Looking around the local GC, we found a 7.25" Meinl Darbuka. Made of Aluminum, it gives good tone, and it will certainly stand up to rough camping trips. The weight is fine - it feels solid, but you won't get tired carrying it. The walls don't resonate, so you can hand-hold it whilst playing, and there are no sharp edges anywhere to catch onto thing. We call it the 'pepper pot'...
