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.

Comments about Meinl Aluminum Doumbek:
This drum is very beautiful (although the engraved ones look even nicer.)It's quite easy to carry around if you buy or make a strap for it, and it's projection is surprising for its size and weight. I hadn't ever played hand drums made of metal before I bought this, and I absolutely love the tone it creates. If you hit in the center you get a deep powerful tone, and on the rim it makes a very punchy high tone. One cool trick I learned is that you can move one hand in and out of the drum while playing to bend the pitch a bit and make it sing
