Doumbeks

The doumbek, darabukka or goblet drum is a percussion instrument of the membranophone family. The drum is single headed and has a goblet shaped body, which can be constructed from various materials such as metal or wood. The drum can be played using various techniques with hands and or a stick. Variations of the instrument have been played since ancient Babylonian times and as early as 1100 BC. There are many types of doumbek or darabukka such as; Egyptian, Turkish, Moroccan and African variations. There are three main sounds produced by the goblet drum; 'doum' is the deepest sound, which is produced by striking the centre of the head. The second is the 'tek' which is a higher pitched sound produced by striking the edge of the head with the fingertips. If struck with the secondary hand the 'tek' is referred to as a 'ka'. The last sound is 'pa' which is a muted sound. Some other techniques involve using a stick in one hand. The doumbek is also often used in western music.
