In one of our previous blogs, we talked about the doumbek 'darbuka' or tabla, as the drum instrument is known. But we did not discuss in details what makes this instrument sound uniquely among themselves. This is where we introduce to you the different darbuka skins available only exclusively at Arabinstruments.com. Darbuka skins can be categorized into 2 motifs, modern and traditional. Under the modern sounds of the doumbek we have the Power Beat skin. This skin comes in black, white and transparent, three arrays of colors that match any doumbek design you purchase from our website. This skin was designed to be durable and fits most standard sized darbukas. A very popular skin head brand among professional musicians alike. The outer ring of this skin is built with durability and tone in mind. Without the need to use candles to warm and tighten the seems or skin such as they did during the traditional olden times Here we are spared trial and error. We looked instead directly to modern technology sporting a simple look.
