Goddess of the sea

I have been playing in some arabic restaurants and haflas here in Colombia and people have got close to me and ask me "where did you get it? What is it? How did you get it?" And i know it's because the strong sound and the impresive look, and i'm pretty proud of it, my musician friends have told me that they think my sombaty is the most gorgeous here in my country and they haven't seen anything like this one. They ask me the same questions, and i answer: you could get one in

Dancers are very impresive as i do because the sound; Dum is very strong and Tak is shine and they love it, so, i'm glad because my dream came true and my level have increased, i think it is because how enthusiastic i feel when i play my sombaty.

So, thank you ArabInstruments team from your friend from the other side of the globe.

wonderful musical instrument

the acoustic expression is wonderful, the craftsmanship is very refined, the bag is excellent, fast shipping and excellent packaging.

great sounding drum

It's a heavy drum, so probably should not be your first drum.  But the sound and quality are outstanding.  Be prepared for some blistering on your "tek" hand initially, but it will really grow on you.  The craftsmanship is delightful--you will receive many compliments.  Go for it!!!

This Darbuka is Outstanding! Wonderful! Beautiful!
Amazing craftsmanship!  To play it is like a dream.  I've never owned such a beautiful and delightful drum. 
I Love my drum.
Ordered it online and it was shipped , along with emails updating the progress of it's journey to Colorado and it arrived intact and on time.
The included case is excellent also, can be worn like a back-pack.
This is the company to order your high quality instruments from.
Also have to mention the video's that one can listen to so you can hear what the drum sounds like.
Love this website!!!!!!
Just can't say enough to Honor them.
