These MEINL Turkish style Darbukas have a beautifully hand-hammered shell that come in five different sizes.

They offer resonant lows and ringing highs with a wide range in between. They can be played as solo instrument or as part of a multi-percussion set up. Either way this drums will catch everybody’s attention for its look and its sound.

MEINL Darbukas are made in the tradition of the original, esoteric goblet-shaped drums found in music from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Southern Asia. Our Darbukas are constructed from thin shells in various metals, each metal giving the different models their special timbre.

The head is secured and tuned with external rings set close to the shell, in the Middle Eastern / Asia Minor-style. Light yet powerful, the Darbukas have a deep full bass. They are well suited for high-pitched snapping sounds as well as a wide range of articulated "doum" and "tak" strokes.
