Features:

  • High-grade, Double-skinned Spring Drum with 2 Resonance Holes.
  • This traditional barrel-shaped spring drum from Iran is one of the best we ever played and heard.
  • This spring drum's sturdy body is made in skilled craftsmanship of various wood bars (e.g. mulberry, pine, walnut, oak, ash or cherry) glued together to a tube. The inside is coated with synthetic resin, the outside of this thunder drum is smoothed and varnished emphasizing the colour of the woods.
  • Both sides are equipped with a tense natural skin (goat or sheep without chemical tanning). This gives this amazing spring drum a loud, crisp and vigorous-penetrating sound.
  • The 1.2 m (47") long steel spring of this thunder drum contributes to the great sound as well. It is mounted properly on one side's skin. The spring is slightly stretched and hardened in a flame which does not only gives it impressive low sound capabilities, but improves the high frequency range and it's nuances considerably.
  • Both opposite, but offset placed sound holes do have a different diameter and invite the player to modulate. You can literally feel the thunderstorm while playing. With a little finger practice you can even play this spring drum in a percussive way - with the resonating reverb of the spring - or without.
  • A very versatile percussion instrument that can also be used as an echo chamber for vocal antics!
  • Comes with a simple but sturdy bag.
  • Length: 22 cm. Diameter: 13 cm
