Hey
Since we build our aluminum darbuka with extra layer of aluminum (Weight: 4.5 K"g. (9.9 lbs)) , even the one with no mother of pearls sounds great!
Once we add the mother of pearl layer, the sound is superb... ;)

Well we will say definitely!

There are many parameters which will effect the sound of the darbuka such as quality and thickness of the aluminum and the skin type.
In case both of them are high, once you will remove the mother of pearl layer, the sound will totally changed.

The mother of pearl layer adds to the darbuka a lot of weight. The weight effect the sound and makes it much more stronger and sharp depending the darbuka structure.
Some professional makers who don't know how to work with mother of pearls, make the structure of the darbuka with 2, 3 layers of aluminum in order to imitate the sound of a darbuka with pearls.

So do mother of pearl is the only factor effecting the sound? No
Will mother of pearls improve the sound while all the other factors are high quality? definitely yes!

Dear darbukadon
You have asked an important question.
We will try to answer that.

How to identify a genuine mother of pearl doumbek

1) The process of building mother of darbuka takes a long time (http://www.arabinstruments.com/how-to-build-pearl-doumbek).
 Every factory or maker who build them usually put his signature which you will not be able to remove since it will be part of the pearls decoration.

2) When you buy a mother of pearl darbuka , make sure you know the name of the brand and it's reputation.

3) Fake mother of pearl darbuka will have a plastic decoration instead of pearls, in this case the weight of the darbuka will be less than 3.5 k"g since the genuine pearls weigh much more.
Usually mother of pearl darbuka weigh from  3.9k"g to 8.5k"g depending the type (http://www.arabinstruments.com/help-you-choose-darbuka)

4) In some cases you will see that the decoration is just a painting paper that has been paste around the aluminum. Don't fall on that trap..

Hope we have helped....
