Looking for Good Doumbek to use easily!!!
« on: June 19, 2015, 12:09:28 PM »
Dear Guys,

This is Tamim. I am 24 years old. I love Doumbek. I'm looking for a good an easy to find doumbek or darbuka. Which material is the more suitable for studio use: ceramic, alumina, brass? Also, which brand model/size would you say is the most versatile? If you have any idea please share me.

Can you provide me information for Doumbek?


Thanks to all Lovers

Hello,

For anyone that could be a new comers to such type of drum, your physique is typically produced with ceramic pottery, machined lightweight aluminum, or possibly birdwatcher. :) :)

 A lot of really are still produced with wood made Besides the reasonable, I recommend all the portability masters. :( :(

They are simply reduced when compared to a large number of djembes, carry a good quality hit for a proportions, and that can easily fit in a fabulous physical fitness back pack. :D :D

Thanks.

 When i was a beginner about Doumbek then i have choose Alexandria Aluminum doumbek.  First time players like this drum because it is a moderate size, very durable and has a good range of tones.  It is a good drum to learn the basics of doumbek playing on.  It also produces quality tones so that even advanced players enjoy playing it too.  Also, it's cost is lower than most other doumbeks, which makes it a great drum for the price.

Other doumbeks that are a little more expensive than the Alexandria doumbeks, but are easy to play and have beautiful tones are the Copper Doumbeks (excluding the large ones) as well as the 8 inch or 10 inch Brass doumbeks.  In addition, these drums are also a moderate size, which is another reason why they are good beginner drums.

As with most things, you get what you pay for.  The Alexandria doumbeks are an excellent drum for the price, but the copper and brass doumbek shells are considered to produce prettier tones than the aluminum shells.The advantage is that the Alexandria and copper doumbeks have curved rims and this type of rim is a little softer on the fingers & hands while playing.

Hi, I thought, a bird watcher is a man watching birds!?! - Here it looks like to be some material of drum shell, isn't it?

Can someone explain it to me, what does that "birdwatcher" actually means???! - Maybe some translation via Google into English - than post the original term please?!
Thx!
