Professional Clay Ceramic Solo Darbuka Drum By Emin Percussion
Darbuka or dümbelek, as we say in Turkey, is the essential percussion instrument in the Middle Eastern, North African, and Balkan traditional kinds of music. It mainly appears under two categories divided according to its material; clay or metal. Although aluminum or copper darbukas are extensively used because of their functionality, clay ceramic solo darbuka also gained their popularity due to their authenticity. Clay ceramic solo darbuka has been initially used in Arabic countries. Musical interactions led to the adoption of the clay darbuka in Turkey. It gained popularity in the Turkish music scene in the 1980s thanks to the performances and playing techniques of Misirli Ahmet, a very famous darbuka virtuoso. Since then, the clay darbuka has gained a prominent place together with the copper or aluminum darbuka with the rise of ethnic music. A wide range of clay ceramic solo darbukas with varying sizes and colors are available in our shop. Our clay ceramic solo darbukas are grouped under standard and special categories. These single-headed, goblet drums can also be classified in terms of their sizes; ceramic solo darbukas are the smallest, medium bass darbukas are middle-sized. There are also big size bass clay darbukas. Four basic elements of earth, water, fire, and air combine, and when they get together successfully, they form the best clay darbukas. In this kind of darbuka, natural skin is used for the head; it is tied tightly over the rim. Mostly goatskin is used on the heads of the clay darbukas in our shop. We have professional clay solo darbukas and professional clay medium bass darbukas available in our store. Our clay ceramic solo darbukas are produced by Emin Percussion or us, Sala Music. All clay darbukas in our store are manufactured by master luthiers, the best artisans of Turkey.
