Meinl FD20D-TF 20" DAF Framedrum

Daf Frame Drum

The Meinl Daf is a classical Persian frame drum with a great tradition. It is equipped with metal rings inside the drum shell and is played with a lot of movement. Meinl places the rings in three different places on the back. This results in a lighter weight of the instrument but provides the full effect. The Meinl Daf is equipped with the ingenious sounding and extremely stable "True Feel" plastic skin.

Not the daf drum I expected
A Customer, 11.02.2018
On the first impression, the Meinl daf looks great and very sober with the frame in dark colour wookd and the head in creamy beige.

However, the playing proved to be otherwise and two major points are standing out:

1. Head is too loose in my opinion, which has the effect of producing grave "muffled" sounds. Also, personally, it is not comfortable to play on a loose surface - I am used to tar drums which are tuned and tunable, and therefore the contact on a non-stretched surface is very unusual.

2. Thumb notch is not deep enough for me, making it difficult for the fingers of the left hand to hit the head.

In conclusion, the Meinl daf is no way near what I expect a daf drum to be. If plenty of imagination, fun to play out of its original purpose, e.g. with accessories or playing around with the ring snares.
