Lightweight, powerful hand drum widely used in Middle Eastern music.
Meinl Doumbek Drums come from the same geographical points of origin as the darbukas, and are a favorite choice of hand drum for percussionists worldwide. Meinl's doumbeks feature an ergonomic, Egyptian-style rounded rim with internal tuning lugs and a synthetic head. The bearing edge is carefully machined to assure consistent tuning. The doumbeks are well-suited for fast finger-roll techniques and have a strong projection. The drum shells are constructed from various materials, each offering a wide range of timbres, weights and visual aesthetics.
Hand made entirely of aluminum, the Meinl Doumbek drum is outstanding in sound and quality reaching from resonant lows to ringing highs. Available as black vinyl covered or copper-finished versions.
