Darbuka Teachers & Lessons / Re: Darbuka Lessons - 8 Parts
« on: January 07, 2015, 05:55:56 PM »
Thank you for posting these.  Iím sure Iím not the only one that has learned from them.  Keep posting videos like these.  That guy has a lot of talent.  Thankfully heís sharing it with all of us.

I have a Meinl Samai Artisan Edition doumbek with mosaic royale design. Its very similar to egy gawhara doumbeks and it costs new $350 + tax. I need $300 + shipping (or local pickup in NY.)
Check out the specs here:

How long have you had it?  Was it new or used when you bought it?  Why are you selling it?  What condition is it in?

Does anyone know a good place to buy second hand darbukas?  Iím in the market for one and donít even know where to look.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey  ;D
So after you have installed the skin and the skin is in the same high of the darbuka metal ring, most of the changes are that the sound will be choked and closed.
In this case what you will need to do is to open the pegs a little around the darbuka, then Put the darbuka on the ground and lean on the center of the skin with your knee. Don't put to much pressure because you don't want to torn the skin. Do it several times also around the skin and around the center of the skin. You will start to get the best sound!!
If you have more tips please share it with us.

I just want to say thatís a beautiful drum.  Thatís just a work of art.  I donít know if I could play such a thing.  I would be too busy looking at it and enjoying its beauty.

Look at this lesson. It will show you how to create an horse running effect with your darbuka  ;)

Thatís the most amazing thing ever!  Iíve always wondered how to do that.  Iím going to go practice now on my own.  Youíre really good at that.  How long have you been doing it?

Thatís how you play an oud!  That guy has a lot of talent.  I could listen to him play for hours.  Itís both exciting and very relaxing at the same time.  This is a guy that knows what heís doing!

Darbuka Teachers & Lessons / Where to find a good teacher?

Where are the best places to find teachers?  Can they be found here?  Iíve just started taking up the drum and I want to learn.  The problem is, Iím having a difficult time finding a teacher.


Those are some talented guys!  They are playing some very nice drums.  I wish I could play like that.  Iím still learning how to do it.  Maybe some day Iíll get half as good as they are.

That sure is funny!  Iíve never thought of using a drum like that before.  Maybe the next time heíll take it to the moon or maybe even Mars!

If you want to know how do we build our mother of pearl doumbek you should read this article:   ;)

That is so beautiful.  The quality of craftsmanship is stunning.  You just donít see musical instruments made this way any more.  Clearly you guys know a thing or two about making quality instruments.
