Your Price: $235.58
This doumbek model is one of the most customary and popular instruments in Egypt and is made in Alexandria. It is 10.6 inches in width and 17 inches in height. Its standard synthetic head is tuned with 6 tuning bolts in the collar. There is an 8.6 inch playing surface and the base is 7.6 inches in width and length.The aluminum shell has a beautiful black and mother of pearl pattern with an Arabic motif. Tuning tool, padded nylon case and extra synthetic head included. Decorations may differ from photo. All mosaic inlays are delicate. It is not uncommon for small pieces of mosaic to dislodge. This is especially true around the edges and on the collar. With a drum's curving surface, this is to be expected. Missing inlay is not considered a defect or blemish. Your drum is unique and small irregularities should just be considered birth marks.
