Description

The Tombak, also referred to as Zarb, is a wooden goblet drum, which is the most frequently played percussion instrument in Persian folk music and the classical Persian music of Iran. Contrary to the traditional crafting, the Tombak from Majid Drums is made from different, entirely handpicked woods. Since it is not cut out from a single piece of wood, the corpus won’t go out of shape over time. In addition, the Tombak of Majid Drums is tunable. An air hose system can be used to change the tension of the skins with a standard bicycle air pump. This form of tuning is both fast and balanced as the air hose directly and evenly spreads the tension to the skin. Heating or moistening of the skin is no longer necessary. This means that the problem of changing the mood with changing air humidity or heat stress is a thing of the past.

Historically, the Daf is often associated with Sufi ceremonies and rituals. Nowadays the sound of this special percussion instrument can be heard all over Middle Eastern and oriental music. The popularity of the drum has increased, so you can find it in different countries like Iran, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Central Asia, Kurdistan and South-Eastern Europe. You might have heard the catchy Daf drum sound in a bunch of oriental folk music songs before. The Sound of Majid Drums “Daf” is especially unique because this high-quality percussion instrument is furnished with metal rings on the inside. Its handmade frame is covered with a natural skin, which gives the Daf its warm and traditional sound. The playing-surface of this drum consists of goat skin by default and contrary to most standard Dafs — its tuneable. Therefore, problems concerning the tension of the playing-surface due to heat etc., are a thing of the past. The tuning works with an air system, which means that the durability of your drum is improved since you don’t have to heat up the skin to adjust the sound.
