The Bendir is an especially popular frame drum used in Southeast Asian music. The construction of the frame is similar to the Def, but a grip hole in the cross support and snare strings attached to the skin inside the drum make all the difference. The typical Bendirlike snare effect is produced by the four strings.

In nearly all cultures on earth at home, the frame drum traditionally sets the tone in the music. A loving attention to detail and a professional sound and manufacturing quality make the Schlagwerk Frame Drums truly spellbinding.
