Hi, yes, those drums are good for training. You can get clear sharp tekka-sounds of it. The doum-sound comes good too, but it may be a bit weak for solo performance. - I had a long look on these Meinl-drums. They are really handy. The only reason I didn't decide to get one was the gap around the head, what gave me personally a discomfort. (That's about five years ago. - Simply I was used to hit the rim with my wrist as a conga-player - I have free wrists now and a more floating technique from my darbuka experience.)

So, if you want to buy some new one I won't stop you.

But, to give you a good advice, let's talk on your existing drum first. - How long are you playing your Toca and why did you start it at all?

Hi, you're welcome!
We are counting one active follower in drums part of this forum, but me, today... You might be the next one!

Hopefully the forum is still growing. I'd like to start at least some topic with serious arguments.

Some years ago I started with darbuka myself coming from congas.
So come on asking! - I'm ready to respond on any of your questions.

Hi dear, I'd guess its origin is Turkey. - Some years ago when I was just looking for a good and cheap professional-like doumbek for me as a beginner I had a look on some handcraftet turkish copper darbukas wich copied Egyptian shape but not really... They were to buy in small music shops and probably made by local manufacturers. Don't know any name or adress.

If you are looking for new skin, I have bad news. - I found not any fitting part to my old turkish one in Istanbul last September. Simply they changed its traditional measures to more compatible ones.

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:
