Two-headed wooden dholak drum that is shaped like a barrel with a tenor and bass head. Drum is held horizontally and played on both sides. Heads are held in place and tuned by nuts and bolts. Nuts can be tuned with a standard wrench, included.
In India, these extremely popular percussion instruments are commonly used in folk music and during marriage ceremonies. Made in New Delhi by skilled craftsmen. Please Note: These drums are handmade and each one is unique so the drums and drum heads will vary in size.
Heads: Drum heads are made from goatskin. The dholak's higher-pitched tenor head is a simple membrane, while the bass head, usually played with the left hand, has a load inside that is a mixture of tar, clay and sand (dholak masala) which lowers the pitch and provides a well-defined tone. Both heads are tucked in a wooden hoop.
