Middle Section of Bronze Entry-Level Darbuka / Doumbek

Bronze finished outer shell

The Bronze Entry-Level Darbuka uses a standard aluminium shell with a bronze metal finish. 

Inside of Bronze Entry-Level Darbuka / Doumbek

Bronze finished inner shell

A bronze metal finish is also used in the inner shell of this Darbuka to ensure an even finish throughout. 

Tuning System of Bronze Entry-Level Darbuka / Doumbek

Internal tuning system

The internal tuning system allows the Darbuka to be kept in tune at all times. As it is internal, the tuning lugs are not exposed and hence do not reduce the playable section of the Darbuka by interfering with the Tek or Ka strokes.

Gawharet El Fan head

These fantastic Gawharet El Fan 22cm Darbuka heads are manufactured by PowerBeat, in Taiwan, and fitted to our Darbukas because of their fantastic sound quality.

As to be expected with all handmade instruments, there may be some minor variations in design, slight imperfections on the body and some small scratches on the Darbuka head. This will not affect the quality of the sound in any way. All items are new and have not been previously used. Darbukas, like most instruments, require tuning and should be played/tuned regularly for the first few weeks until the head sets fully and the true beauty of the sound starts to shine through.
