Alexandria Doumbek, MOP, Full Body (Item Code: MDE16) This Egyptian doumbek is 11 wide X 17.5 inches tall, and has a 8.5 inch playing surface. The clear standard synthetic head is tuned with 6 tuning bolts in the collar. Beautiful and intricate inlay of the full body real mother of pearl makes this drum a work of art. Only the thin trim lines are synthetic.
Patterns may vary slightly from drum to drum. All mosaic inlays are delicate. It is not uncommon for small pieces of mosaic to dislodge. This is especially true around the edges, tuning lugs, 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.
Tuning tool, nylon case and extra synthetic head included. Actual weight 9 pounds.
