Let's round this topic up with that great performance:

Thank you for your interest. Borys Słowikowski is Polish. Perhaps the drum is made in Pakistan, but I'm not sure it's a Mazhar. Looking the video you may pay attention at the manner of the upper hand by the edge of drum. There the wrist is resting on frame. Look what makes the difference:

Yes, of course, hear the original buzzing sound i.e. after the right-handed slap at 0:14 s.

Thank you, this video is great, but sorry, it's not that kind of mazhar showing, what you mention in text.
The mazhar of the video is a frame drum originally styled in Syria. It's called mizhar too. It's a big frame drum like tar, only the frame is deeper a lot. There are not any jingles on it.

The mazhar discribed in the text is like a bigger version of a riq. Look this video:

With height it's same effect like on a pipe:
Than longer it is, it sounds even deeper. So increasing height of darbuka/doumbek affects a deep clear doum sound.

There is another effect in relation of height and diameter:
A thin, tall shape gives less decay and affects longer sounding of a single doum.

Darbuka Lesson Number #7 has been published today.
We do hope you will learn from it.

Look these two videos to get some lively impression of a good Pakistani drum:

Those shape - with huge skin and a compact body - should give you good sounds, but you will need some more training to master it.
If skin and screws are in a good state and there are no deformations in the body the price might be ok.
Look for round deep doum-sounds and clear open snapping sounds at the edge.
Good luck!

Hi, don't know what you consider "the proper notation", there is no single one, but I know the very problem with that "phrasing" well. Maybe I can help you.

I posted some related stuff a few weeks ago.
Look my Topic: Professional breakdown of a rhythmical pattern

Does it matter!? - So let's talk about first and I could try to understand, what's actually on your mind. Do you agree?

Hey don't worry with this, it only means you are especially sensitive ...

I don't know about drumkits a lot, but it's same with hand drums too. It takes me about half an hour to come close with a new setup.
A new location - other acoustics; a drum of someone, I feel new skin textures with my fingers, it's strange - another tension, weight, all vibes are different ... it may be horrible.

But actually, I've got much new experience playing different drums, so I think it's good indeed.

Last, not least...

George Harrison?! - Yess man!!!

So, I may introduce to you another amazing George - George Kandalaft.

Thank you,
we've already seen this video at
Topic: New Video course of Oud
Please reply there.

... use

Copy and past notation of the pattern (from the beginning till end-sign "|") into the "Rhythm:"-Field - with "PLAY!"-Button you'll get a MIDI for your player.
i.e. try:

You'll get a sound sample of a pyramidical exercise for your timing.

P.S. Doesn't work?!
Look this: Sample
