banjira 17.5 Inch Dholak Delhi Style Nut & Bolt Tune. 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.
These drums are handmade and each one is unique so the drums and drum heads will vary in size.
10" L x 17.5" H x 10" W
Tenor: 6.5" and Bass: 8.25"
Stained Wooden shell with linear etching and a metal handle.
Drum heads are made from goatskin. The dholak's higher-pitched tenor head is a simple membrane, while the bass head, usually played with the left hand, has a load inside that is a mixture of tar, clay and sand dholak masala which lowers the pitch and provides a well-defined tone. Both heads are tucked in a Wooden hoop.
