Bright sounds from Orient
AlexM, 07.01.2010
Once again a sensible investment! If you want to penetrate a little into the percussion and do not necessarily have much idea about it (speak: first try yourself) what you should look for / hear, can I you this Doumbek / Darbouka? Warmest recommend! For his pleasant price he does everything he is asked for! Included in the price is also a VERY handy carrying bag, a replacement fur and the key for tuning.

With the artificial leather, which is covered over the body, the instrument is additionally protected. The processing is good and the ab-factory atmosphere is also optimal. So you can start right away! ;) I recommend the experimenter, after several hours of own discovery of the sounds and possibilities (and finger-torture), a excursion in a couple of Youtube tutorials with instructions for the correct playing. Then it's really going on!

The sound is very balanced and unexpectedly complex. This means that mid-sized, large-area beats on the center are particularly bass-intensive, but tight but powerful touching of the edge delivers incredibly strong, metallic and crisp sounds. The edge is also pleasantly rounded and the transitions are beautifully soft, so that the pain is reduced to a minimum. Do not worry, though, if you have FUN on the first day with the part, your fingers are guaranteed to be pretty thick the next day. And warm. As shown in Fig.

It is worthwhile in any case and offers an original alternative in many kinds of music, with loud sounds that can definitely be carried out, be it in the live mix or on the recording. If you are on exoticism and orient, here is well served, for "painless" money. Have fun with it!
