The Meinl HE-315 Darbuka
measures 8.24" x 16" and features a hand hammered aluminum shell, a tunable synthetic head, and built-in jingles. A great sounding instrument, made to the high standards that Meinl are famous for!
Darbukas are hand drums that originate from Eastern Europe and the Middle East where they are widely used in folk music. In the west they have become extremely popular with percussionists looking for a new voice. By using different strokes the player can obtain high pitched tones as well as a deep, full bass. The addition of the internal jingles adds another dimension to the great sound of the Meinl HE-315 Darbuka, giving that authentic sound favoured in Turkish and Arabic music.
Nottingham Drum and Guitar Centre can supply a wide range of percussion instruments and hand drums from around the world, and the Meinl HE-315 Darbuka is just one of many high quality instruments that we stock.
