Hi, that's good news!
I'm not familiar with neys, but I am drumming several drums. The experience differs on every instrument.

When I have to learn a difficult part sometimes it's useful to begin as simple as possible and after first success change to more difficult instrument. It's not that frustrating.

Yes, some years ago, when I first looked for an egypt-style drum, I tried it on a Meinl made of copper. It was really great to me! -  The only minus was a huge gap beside the head. I feeled not comfortable with, because I like a fat contact at my wrists and the body.

Nice! - I see a lot of copper. What's your opinion on copper instead of aluminium?!

Nice work!!!

The knobs are very hard to turn and they slip a lot .

Pay attention: The pegs are of conical shape. Pull the peg a bit out of hole to loosen and turn, push it back into hole to fasten postion.

Sorry, I guess you are a Bot!!! - Please add your sample, if I'm wrong!

But really - nice Spam.
I'll leave it for creativity in data mining.

Hey folks, be aware:
Drummers haven't *those* problems as well!!! 🤣

Brunette, you're welcome!  :)
Me, I started drumming as dancer too - with Salsa styles and Conga drums. It's about 7 years ago, and I cannot stop to do percussion now.

I'm glad to hear your story and I wish you all the best. Don't hesitate to come with more detailed questions. I'm sure it's a lot folks around here, interested in bellydance, me too.

A good learning app, adressed to both - drummers and dancers, you can find here:

Hi, dear, I'd actually like to see more requests like yours

Regarding the music:
There's several parts: intro, malfuf (2/4), saidi (4/4), samai (10/4), saidi (again), malfuf (again) and extro.
Good luck for your 1st choreography!

How long have you been a dancer now?

Hi, I guess stingray is actually rare all over the world, but I've just seen nice drums with catfish on it.
Good idea?? - What do you think?!

Next, how to learn the sounds:
  • Begin with open strokes only:
    Doum (D), Tekka (TK).
  • When you can do strong D while TK sounds similar each to each other, you may continue with closed strokes:
    Grab, Slap and closed TK....
  • Then try to modulate TK from sound open tone to whispering sounds or loud closed ones at the other end.
  • And when you mastered this, then I'd recommend you, to continue with muffled tones like those effect, Aviel is showing in the video.

So, I'm looking forward, you'll become a great drummer!
See you...

Hi david, you're welcome. - Don't worry, you need at least some weeks of training to get clear sounds. And you may improve your skills by years..!

Let's look your drum first: It maybe staying untuned coming from bazaar only. To proof the state of the skin, slightly press in it's middle with one fingertip or thumb.
Look the reaction: If whole skin sags, it is too weak, otherwise you'd see some hollow around your finger, while skin actually stays streched up to the edge!

Please read my tuning advice!
