Meinl Aluminum Black Vinyl Doumbek - 8 1/2" x 17 1/8" - Product Information

MEINL Doumbeks come from the same geographical points of origin as the darbukas, and are a favorite choice of drum for percussionists world-wide. Our doumbeks feature an ergonomic, Egyptian-style rounded rim with internal tuning lugs and a synthetic head. The bearing edge is carefully machined to assure consistent tuning. The doumbeks are well suited for fast finger-roll techniques and have a strong projection. The shells are constructed from various materials, each offering a wide range of timbres, weights and visual aesthetics.

Hand made entirely of aluminum, the MEINL Doumbek is outstanding in sound and quality reaching from resonant lows to ringing highs.

Meinl Black Vinyl Doumbek

Comments:

The instrument is fine, but the vinyl material covering the shell was not properly adhered at the underside (inside) of the instrument. The material is loose and partially covers the bottom opening, which can affect the sound. I can probably fix it, so I won't try to return the instrument. I have had great success with other Meinl instruments, so this sloppiness was disappointing.

Great Sound!

Comments:

Sounded amazing right out of the box! Stinging highs, and quite a lot of depth on the low pitch. This is being used in a 100+ - member concert band, and there's NO PROBLEM hearing it!
