Darbuka Sound & Video Clips / Re: Some new darbuka sound samples
« on: May 12, 2015, 09:07:40 AM »
This is fascinating really makes me jump in joy, itís my motivation from long time and I just love this latest video, I wish I could be like you but as they say no one becomes great just like that we all have to be hard working to reach to this stage.

Itís fabulous to learn to replace Darbuka skin, but my question that should we do it with Remo Skin? I have heard a lot about pearl one, but I am not sure if itís better or Remo skin, so please can you explain the details about this?

I would suggest you to replace it completely because itís tough to only build the head, it might be possible but you will not find the sound as you do normally, so itís much better that you replace it completely with help of that video provided by James.

I have face the same issue with the video, as itís really tough to figure out what type of drum it actually is but I do agree with Abdul Raheem, it looks more like Turkish, but itís very hard to be entirely sure about this so if you can yourself tell us, it would be great!

I have not had my own Darbuka, as I mostly practice or try my friends, but once I am done with learning I will definitely look to have my own, so I need to know whatís the basic difference between Copper and Aluminum so I can purchase the best.

You made a really valid point that our focus must be to get the normal stuff right and once we done that then it becomes all so much easier to go ahead to learn these techniques, but my question is still what Alberto asked, as just to know how many exactly are there? I believe in something like 5-6.

Thatís brilliant guide to identify a genuine mother of pearl Darbuka, I always believe the best thing to avoid anything like this is to purchase it from a reliable source so we never have to worry. I have one question what to do when we purchase online? Itís tough to identify much from videos or pictures.

James I am also very new mate, I can tell you itís a hell of a task to play like you see in video. In fact, it would be luck to get anywhere near that. I agree with Skylight that we need to practice a lot first up, but do we have enough passion to do that?

Frankly speaking I have never seen how a Ceramic Darbuka is build, so itís tough to say how long it can take. I would like to know more things and thatís whether these Darbuka are handmade? I believe itís seriously tough to do that.

Itís an art and when we are doing something like this then salary / money does not really matter, if we really wish to become serious players then our aim has to be on the performance not the money, itís the only way we will truly justice this art!

Doumbek, Darbuka Lovers / Is Darbuka the greatest instrument?
« on: May 12, 2015, 06:17:28 AM »
My question is a slightly newbie type because itís only recently that I have started to take so much interest in Darbuka, I have found so many other instruments like Oud and others, so I am eager to know which is the best out of all these?

Sorry, it does not make sense because Darbuka is an instrument thatís the symbol of love, so you canít hate people because of it. Love is the real way to be good at playing this and if you remove this then I donít think you will be able to become a good player.

I am not all too sure about Darbuka with 4 tuning bolts because I have mostly seen 6 bolts, as my friends also have like that, so I do like to know whether itís really better or does it even make a difference as how many tuning bolts we have?
