BLEMISHED: Two-headed wooden dholak drum that is shaped like a barrel with a tenor and bass head. Drum is held horizontally and played on both sides. Heads are held in place and tuned by nuts and bolts. Nuts can be tuned with a standard wrench, included.

In India, these extremely popular percussion instruments are commonly used in folk music and during marriage ceremonies. Made in New Delhi by skilled craftsmen.

Please Note: These drums are handmade and each one is unique so the drums and drum heads will vary in size.
