Vintage Darbuka
« on: November 24, 2018, 01:04:10 PM »
Greetings Darbukafolas,

I come seeking your help.

I've come across an old darbuka (at least 40 years, please see attachment) that I'm not familiar with, and I'm hoping you can help me with a couple of things.

First, help identify this drum.  Where is it from?  Who made it?  It's only a gut feeling, but I think it's Persian.

Second, where can I get the missing hardware?  Obviously the skin is missing, but I have plenty of that.  As I understand it the missing hardware consisted of an adjustable brass ring with a rubber grommet.

Thank you for any light you can shed.
