Buy & Sell Oud / Buying a second hand oud.
« on: January 02, 2015, 11:39:40 AM »
I'm a total beginner in oud... I'm playing viola and nyckelharpa  and some guitar. I like Arabic music and the oud. Last Sunday I was on a flee market (second hand things) and there was an oud for sale. Because I was in a hurry, I didn't had much time so I'll go back this sunday.

The guy asks 160 Euro for it. probably I can get that down a bit.

The instrument looked nice, but the strings were not in good shapen (broken, ...) But since I'm a total beginner, can anyone tell me what I can check/look for to see if this instrument can be a good one? Or at least can be playable for a beginner.I don't think the strings are playable.

Darbuka is the most important rhythm instrument of the eastern music. From B.C. to today it was used by the sivilizations in Anatolia, Mesopotomia and Middle Asia, passed through the phases and took its last shape as Arabic (Egyptian) and Turkish darbuka today.
serving the darbuka-lovers from beginners to the professionals with our aluminium and copper darbukas which are unique art-works hand-made by the masters of Erzincan embroidering.

We have searched all over the African continent for the best doumbek selection. And listed below are our many choices for the best offerings.
From Turkey we found their famous cast aluminum doumbeks with mylar heads for exceptional crisp sound. Check out the new green swirl colors available in the aluminum doumbeks.
From Egypt we offer you the lightweight wooden doumbek with inlaid mother of pearl design. The only ceramic one from Egypt is beautifully done with lovely designs.
In Morocco, we found the famous Moroccan doumbeks - beautiful traditional ceramic doumbeks with extra goatskin lacings for tight, perfect tones. Check out the designs Morocco has sent us. The black clay doumbek is very nice as well and has a wonderful sound.
And then we heard so much about Pakistani doumbeks, we had to check them out as well. And, of course we had to have the brass, nickel plated, embossed doumbeks for their ease of tuning, and lightweight feature.

Arabian in origin, the dumbek is commonly found in Turkey, the Balkan countries, and North Africa. The Dumbek is a drum with a goblet or chalice-like shape. Also known as the Dombak, Doumbek, Darabuka, and Darbukka it is commonly associated with Middle Eastern music, often as the lead voice of percussion. The name is an approximation of the two basic sounds the drum makes: "Dum" (the bass tone) and "Bek" (the high-pitched crack from the edge of the drum). There is actually a great deal of variety available in the sound.
The body of the Dumbek is made of nickel, ceramic, or compressed aluminum. The head may be fish-skin, goat-skin or plastic. The model many professionals use, is compressed aluminum with a plastic head, and can be tuned. The Dumbek is typically about 18" high with a head of 10" in diameter.

well, you probably can't, unless you reload an original copy of the video. I would recommend not switching drives so often, but if you can't zipping and raring files may help, or just leaving the drive plugged in. Pictures are rarely harmed from being transfered, but video is genreally easier to corrupt. If you can store them on an internal hard drive, they would be fine.

We are not there personally to know what is going on and how to give you tips be a better rider. This something better answered by your trainer. You could also ask for advice and opinions from people at your barn.
A couple of tips. Try around the world. Have someone or your trainer hold your horse while you sit on your horse bareback. Keep your arms out at shoulder height. Then move your left leg and move to sitting with both feet hanging off your horse's right side. Then swing/move your right leg over your horses rump and sit backwards on your horse. Then move your left leg over your horse's rump and sit with both feet dangling off your horse's left side. Then move your right leg over your your horse's neck and back into home position. Continue clock wise about ten times. Then go counter clock wise. Swing/move your right leg over the horses neck and sit with both feet dangling off the horse's right side. Continue to move in that direction.
This helps with balance and trust with your horse.

Darbuka Teachers & Lessons / Any good teacher lesson plans sights?

I don't know the age of your students, but I taught a similar lesson with customary units to my third grades, and one way that I got them really engaged as an anticipatory set was to give them a ruler and have them measure things in their desks/ classrooms. They loved this!

If you wanted to add the estimation component into the anticipatory set, you could have they make a guess about how long their desk, chair leg, eraser, etc. They could record their guesses. Then they could acually measure those same objects to check their estimations.

For weight, you could do something very similar, but you might have to do it whole class because you probably don't have a class set of scales. It could be really fun whole class though, have students make guesses about the weight of something, and then record those on the booard, then have a student come up and actually measure it and see who was closest. They love that sort of thing.

Place the camera as far away as you can from your drums, perform outside and with the camera on a tripod, zoom in as tight as you want to frame your shot.

The tiny mic on P&S cameras were never intended to record music well.

If your really want to record your sounds, you need to buy something like this and sync the resulting sound with your video.
