Ravi

Instrument magnifique mais qui requiert une technique de doigts assez véloce pour le faire "chanter".
Comme tout les tambours sur cadre, c'est un instrument fragile, il faut donc se procurer une housse de protection et penser à détendre la peau après usage. J'ai acheté une housse Meinl, parfaite…

Hervorragender Sound und beste Verarbeitung
AaronTyde, 21.04.2017
Ich verwende diese Framedrum von Schlagwerk im homerecording-Bereich. Ihr guter tiefer Sound und ihre sehr gute Stiimmbarkeit decken vielfältige Einsatzmöglichkeiten ab. Das Fell und die Verarbeitung sind von höchster Qualität. Dieses Instrument war ein Volltreffer.

Excellent tambour
LC70, 04.11.2018
Sonorités riches et variées. Facile à prendre en main par sa taille moyenne : on peut jouer dans de multiples positions, y compris par dessus et les 2 mains au centre du tambour.
La peau est d'emblée très bien tendue, pas eu encore besoin de resserrer les vis après 2 semaines d'utilisation. Bon "tak" aigüe sur le bord. J'avais eu l'occasion d'essayer un Meinl (de 60cm) qui avait de très bons graves mais aucun aigües. Schlagwerk me paraît plus fiable en qualité.
Si je dois mettre une réserve c'est sur ses graves, mais je ne pense pas qu'on puisse en obtenir de plus profonds avec 50cm de diamètre.
Excellente qualité de fabrication.

Best in class!
Bixy, 05.04.2015
It has been 4 months since i bought my schlagwerg. I played it long enough to write a review.

I play Turkish classical music usüls, mevlevi ayini and ilahi. For the style of music i play, it is increadible. Acousticly perfect. Filling room with basses with "DÜM" 's. Wonderful trebles with "TE KA" 's and "TAK" 's.

I got my drum and first thing to do was checking the tune of drum. It came perfectly tuned. In couple days it waited and i tuned it as it should 440 to "A". It was real easy to tune it. Quality of tuners are really good. Anyway it came with allen tuner added to drum.

Wood quality is like dream. Frame tak's are so crisp. Wood resonance is really great. Leather is as they said hand picked.

I play it on upright position. I dont have so big hands but in couple days you get used to it. On upright position treble sounds are more charactheristic. Lap position is more mid based. Upright position Middle finger düm's are more bassier than lap position.

If you are interested in turkish usül rhythms go with Schlagwerk. Dont buy smaller than 52 cm to have good acoustic. I can always recommend this product for players who plays any style of music.
