Dholak - Deluxe, Cord and Ring
This Dholak is a deluxe, wooden, two-headed drum tuned with a traditional cord and ring system. The approximate measurements are 7-inch tenor head, 9-inch base head, and 16 to 17 inches long. Held horizontally, both heads are played. In India, these extremely popular percussion instruments are commonly used in folk music and during marriage ceremonies. The shells are manufactured in the northern Indian State of Uttar Pradesh with locally grown neem and rosewood. After transporting to Mumbai the goat skin heads are fitted to the drum shells with traditional leather cords. Design and color may vary.
