A smaller size hand thrown stoneware doumbek, this is a joy to play! Thrown in one piece and light in weight for its size, it has a great range of tones, and is sensitive to every finger touch. This is glazed with my buttermilk glaze smooth and sensual. It is decorated with incised cobalt blue lines accented with turquoise slip dots. The goat skin is without blemish on this drum. Perfect drum to enhance your skills or as a accompanying drum. Play these between your legs, or on your hip with skill! 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. the decorative cloth edge can bee carefully peeled off and replaced with your favorite patterned cloth. 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 9.5 inches high by 7 inches at the head.
