Ok, I'm using notation convention from the Khafif-site.
By mine small and capital letters show non-accented notes and the strokes to play heavier or as accents as well.
The text actually came as an explanation of

Sorry, I've just not the time to overlook all clips. Further comment comes later.

In my eyes shape of the Mid-Easts is inspired by Iranian Tonbak - only heigth is in different proportion... I see namely the secret of that great sounds in those shape... Since there's a lot of different Turkish drums and I know only this one as Pakistani I'd guess its body and tuning system is adopted from over there.

But I took notice that Emin got a new level with its drums: They made an original Turkish tuning system having proportions like Pakistani one. The lot of screws allows excellent fine tuning, screws and rings are that small you don't feel a disadvantage related to an Egyptian styled edge. - I'm really sure the influence came mainly from those Mid-East drums!

I've had one of named Emins in my own hands in Istanbul last fall and I cannot explain in words that satisfaction what I got from.

...and yes ... the Khafif site ... I learnt a lot from this ... but actually I sticked in great collection of rhythms all the time and didn't look around as you ...

Hi, Willys, happy welcome.
Hand independence on Mediterranean drums in three words:
1. Play base pattern with strong hand only
2. Play ornamentation with weak hand or both (especially fast rolls)
3. Independence will increase right by the way

For your impro you may find this a good practical introduction:

I found that Emin Percussion also has a similar style with somewhat similar shape.... but at a much higher price tag :(
You may compare sound and handling here:

Once I met Ben Dagovitch with his Mid-East (and the Kalebash) life here in Munich. He came with Yamma Ensemble. OmG - what a performance!!! - But sorry, I have no clip to show you.

... absolutely true ... Yes, I'm actually thinking next one of mine should have those jingles.
By the way it doesn't matter a lot to unscrew the woods - why not?!

Don't know anything - but a drum with that shape I'd had on radar for years! - If it is a drum like in those clips - then WOW, you would get a versatile instrument - best choice!!! - Thanks for sharing.
