Cheap drum, average quality and sound.

27.09.2016
If you think about playing darabuka for real - forget it. Otherwise that's a nice drum for beginners and having fun. It's too light to play comfortably holding it horizontaly on your thigh without any additional straps. The rim is very high and it makes your fingers hurt until you learn to avoid it (it also applies to screws). The sound is ok, just ok.

Good for beginners and children

DrNI, 07.02.2013
I'm new to this instrument, but I already have experience with the djembe. Now is the same from the sound generation principle the same, from the operation not.

The HE-124 is a beginner's part. Looks nice, sounds OK, but not tingling. Together with the even smaller and more affordable HE-100, the Darbuka is also a good tool for children, especially since the plastic skins are comparatively cheap, if one breaks.

If you look at the tutorials on the Darbuka on YouTube, you will soon realize that there are good reasons why these instruments are also available in 100EUR more. The sound again completely different! And if you hit the drum, you can understand it again: The tension rings are made of relatively coarse-grained aluminum and just at the beginning with still insecure technology one beats there already times overly on the edge. These greasy rings also provide for a certain head-to-headness, which makes it difficult to keep the balance of the drum, which makes the free stop from the lying left hand (lefthanded right hand) a challenge. The mechanics are fixed and must be freed by a "left-hand".

Conclusion: For the sniffing is the thing in order. If you stay longer, you want a better drum. This one he or she can give the children to play.
