Just to confirm, is the new Remo head the correct size?  I know Remo makes a few diameters of the Skyndeep - just wanted to confirm it is the same size as the old head.

@bsfloyd, a GeF?!? - So you made it...! :)

Ha ha, sure did!  Just received it a short while ago.  And, for Fatherís Day I was gifted a Savvas Black Widow from the wonderful family :). Two wonderful drums!!

@ Oz, please let us know how you make out with dHuGoís tip...

Hello Oz and welcome to the forums!!

Did you mark with tape or the like where the rim and body were so that when assembled again it would be the same?  Some drums have issues if they are not aligned back up, some donít.

Are any of the screws stripped out?  I wonder why some screws are higher than the others.  On my classic GEF, there is a very slight gap between the rim and body - I have it tuned pretty high.  It has a Remo orange swirl head on it.  I like the head but Iím considering a Skyndeep or Renaissance.

Just curious, why is Emin Darbuka so expensive??  ???

Hello zippo and welcome!!  The Emin instruments look to be made to the finest details and the construction of them look very nice.  However, without having the opportunity to play them first hand, I cannot say why they are priced the way they are.  I do believe the fact that they are made one by one and by hand has a strong factor in the price.  Have a look at Savvas percussion and the wooden Hubb drums - all a good amount more than other drums.

Hello Sailbum and welcome to the forums!!!

Crap, I posted a reply with more explanations but it didnít go through because another post was coming through while I was typing it.  Maybe it will still show up later - hopefully.  If not, I will type it up again at a later time as Iím rather tight on time right now.

Nonetheless, wanted to give you a welcome!!

DHuGo - at this point we are just feeding the troll.  We could feed it forever and it will never go away.  Or, we could just be done with it and keep moving on with music.  I like the latter :)

Ok, ok - this thread is way over my head.  I tend to forget that Mid East music does have a strong spirituality, and for that I apologize for my naive nature.

So, because I donít follow or connect with this spirituality in Mid East music, I will bow out of this thread.  Because music is such a universal language, I am connected to the music itself.  If I must share my feelings, they are that of neo-paganism ;)

Iím sorry, but how does this post relate to the Ney?  Unless trollers will troll.  The Ney is a beautiful instrument in all its glory and I love to listen to it.  I can play a bit of it, but I listen to others much better  ;D

Great work, dHuGo,  Now we have a detailed score  :)

@ davidko2 - I think the confusing part is that there are several parts working off each other, and the piano part is very syncopated with its off beats.  I think if you play either parts (udu or darbuka as posted above) it will sound just fine.  And, if you wish to create your own line within those two rhythms you can have your own creation   ;)

Have fun with it!

Ah ha - yes, I see it (and more so feel it).  Another new 5 beat rhythm to add to my playing!

Wonderful!!  Now I need to buy an udu  :D

It was fun working that rhythm out.  Itís good to know all those years of not using my rhythm reading skills didnít fall far away from me  ;)

Great post!  Surely written as a 5/4 rhythm and also for Udu.  I wondered what the instrument was in the recording.  I am not very familiar with the udu.  Seems like a very cool instrument.

I do read standard notation and rhythms.  The best way (IMO) to understand this would be to break it down into its sub beats:

1 _ _ _ 2 _ _ _ 3 _ _ _ 4 _ _ _ 5 _ _ _ |
O       X   O   .   X   O       X     X |
O   v   X   O   v   X   O       X   X X |

The top line represents the 5 count measure and the two bottom lines represents the played hits.  Sounds as - 1, 2 and, and 4, 5 ah, 1 and, 2 and, 3 and, 4, 5 and ah.

I hope this helps!
