Boom de de de boom
I have been bashing this for years now, looks amazing and sounds really good. Has been dropped and knocked, I've tried different heads and different tensions, really messed with it. All the threads on the bolts are clean the collar is clean and there doesn't appear to be a mark on it after all these years. Came with a cheap carry bag which the zip broke on but to be honest for the price and quality of the drum itself I would still rate this 5 stars. Well worth buying a synthetic head for this if you're a beginner to experience a different type of sound.

Darbouka Turkish
Charles P., 18.09.2012
I already had an Egyptian Darbuka, and I wanted to taste the differences of the Turkish Darbuka.

This product suits me well. The graphics are a mixture of paintings and engravings on the copper (or alloy).

The sound is clearly different from the Egyptian; The harmonics more metallic, and easier to obtain, the bass always well present despite the smaller size.

As far as this product is concerned, I find that the finishes are not up to par. Castings of varnish are present, the copper strapping is damaged and the screws are not exactly straight (only a few millimeters)

The interior is really sloppy, as if we do not see it.

Otherwise, all the same, it is a beautiful Darbouka. I would have liked a more upscale model, without the defects mentioned above.

To finish, it comes with a very poor quality cover, and also two skins. A pre-assembled goat skin (I think), and the other plastic. But looking for the tuning note (C or C #), I cracked the animal skin ...

A good product, but little better ...
