The Meinl Percussion Artisan Edition doumbek combines age-old Egyptian craftsmanship with contemporary technology for outstanding tone and resilience. Its cast aluminum shell is ornately decorated with an intricate mosaic inlay handcrafted using genuine mother of pearl. This stunning artwork isn't just beautiful to look at - it also enhances the resonance and projection of the drum. With its 9" diameter and ergonomically contoured shape, the Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek feels natural and balanced when playing. It produces a wide range of sounds, from crisp, cutting dums to deep, booming teks. The 9" synthetic head stays in tune through all weather conditions while still providing excellent response. For drummers seeking an authentically crafted Egyptian doumbek with impressive tonal qualities, the Meinl Percussion Artisan Edition is an inspired choice.

Authentic Egyptian Mosaic Artwork Created With Mother of Pearl

The most striking feature of the Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek is its exquisite handcrafted mosaic artwork. Using genuine mother of pearl sourced from the Red Sea, artisans carefully cut and shape each tiny fragment to form the custom designed patterns. The pieces are then meticulously set into the aluminum shell, creating stunning visual details. But these mosaics aren't just beautiful to look at. By increasing the surface area, they also enhance the resonance and projection of the drum. This results in a wide range of clear, focused tones perfect for solos or accompaniment. The one-of-a-kind mosaic inlays give each Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek a unique, artistic flair while providing outstanding tonal qualities.

Cast Aluminum Shell Offers Robust Resonance and Projection

Underneath the remarkable mosaic artwork lies the Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek's cast aluminum shell. The aluminum efficiently transfers vibrations across the entirety of the shell for full, rich tones. It also cuts down on unwanted overtones, keeping each dum and tek clear and focused. Whether played softly and subtly or aggressively hammered, the notes sing out with impressive volume and sustain. The 9" diameter shell has an hourglass contour that feels comfortable and balanced when held. The aluminum construction also ensures consistent, reliable performance through years of playing. For drummers who value robust tones as much as visual artistry, the cast aluminum Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek shines.

Synthetic Head Provides Tuning Stability in all Conditions

Topping off the remarkable Meinl Artisan Edition doumbek is a synthetic head that offers tuning stability in any performance setting. The tightly stretched 9" head responds instantly to your hands, capturing every nuance. And unlike traditional animal skin heads, it maintains consistent tension across a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels. Whether you're playing an outdoor festival, late night club gig or recording session under hot studio lights, you can trust the Meinl doumbek's tuning. The head also has enough give for excellent rebound when playing rapid rhythms but doesn't choke the resonance. For drummers who want excellent playability without the tuning headaches, the Meinl Percussion Artisan Edition doumbek is a stellar choice.
