High quality, American made steel...
Fabricated Steel Doumbek made by...
Fabricated Steel Doumbek made by steel artist Quintin in the USA. These unique drums have all steel bodies which are welded and finished with a glued natural skin head. They have excellent tonal range, giving great, deep, low dums and clear high teks.
This drum is 24 inches tall and 13 inches wide at the head. It has a nice deep tone, but also can achieve good tek sounds as well.
I love this drum, it was actually one of the first drums I bought from this supplier, the natural skin head gives a wonderful variety of sound. If you like holding it down, this drum is an excellent choice. Quintin uses a thinned down cow head that has an amazing texture, it has a nice deep voice, but can come up and allow you to play around and solo as well. Because of the metal construction this drum is more durable than the ceramic counterpart, but because of the natural head I recommend using a lamp if you are playing outside or in areas with a large swing in humidity.
I'll try to get a video up of me playing one of these drums soon.
