Hand thrown stoneware doumbek with a aculpted goddess figure offering a breast and holding her belly as the base. The glaze is my wood ash that picks up all the subtleties of the form., This has a beautiful green tie dyed skin with brown accents to compliment the drum. Perfect drum to express yourself if you have a connection to these creatures of fire! I have made these drums for twenty years, and as a hand drum instructor, I demand the best sound, feel, and look from them! The elegant ‘venturi” shape is optimal for this type drum giving good volume, bass, and tonal range. The goat skin head is securely glued on, the lip shape allowing for plenty of glued surface and a nice rounded edge easy on your fingers. I throw these very light, so don’t expect a clunker! This middle Eastern belly dance style drum includes a clay strap lug mounted at the balance point, so just add a cloth shoulder strap and these are easy to carry and play. Ceramic drum can break, so I highly recommend you store them on a wall hook, away from sunlight and moisture. The cloth strip is mainly decorative. but also adds to make a non slip surface to rest your hand. This drum is 10 inches high by 7.25 inches at the head, a perfect size for traveling with, but still with a large bass and very crisp top end tones.
