Is it easy to find replacement parts?
« on: May 14, 2015, 04:20:17 PM »
I am just starting out with these instruments and yesterday I went to a shop where I liked Pearl Darbuka, but it was so expensive yet I am really interested, so I just want to know whether replacements part are easily found or not?

Generally speaking, you won't really need to buy replacement parts for a darbuka/doumbek/durbakke very often (if ever). Especially for the metal ones with the synthetic heads, they're a very durable instrument, and the heads are probably the only part you might have to replace. Having said that, it's pretty easy these days to buy replacement heads for them, especially online (Arab Instruments carries them ;) ).
