The New Generation Darbuka: Perfect for Beginners and Pros Alike

The new generation darbuka is an excellent choice for both beginner and professional players. This solo model has an 8.6-inch (22 cm) skin, making it larger than the standard darbuka but smaller than the sombaty plus darbuka.

Why Did We Build This Model?

Many darbuka players wanted a higher treble sound than the standard size darbuka offers, without the weight of the sombaty model. The new generation solo darbuka meets these needs, offering the best of both worlds: the sound quality of a sombaty and the lighter weight of a standard darbuka.

 

 

Who Will Enjoy This Model the Most?

Young players, men, and women who prefer not to carry a heavy darbuka but still want a powerful sound. Shorter players or those with shorter arms will find this size more comfortable to play.

Are the New Generation Darbukas Hand-Made?

Yes, all our new generation darbukas are hand-made. They feature decorations made from mother of pearl or acrylic, all cut and applied by hand through a meticulous process passed down from generation to generation.

 

 

How Fast Can I Become a Professional Darbuka Player with the New Generation Darbuka?

This is a tricky question. Our players use the new generation darbuka for home practice, performing at big events like weddings, and recording music. Your progress depends on how much time you dedicate to practicing, your passion, and your learning speed.

At Arab Instruments, we can promise you a few things: You won't be able to put this darbuka down for long—it's addictive. It looks stunning, and all your friends and family will be jealous.
