The Kachhi Dhol is a double skin drum. Contrary to the Bhangra Dhol it is considerably lower priced and more compact. It is traditionally hung around the neck and is played standing up with drumsticks. It produces a very strong and powerful bass. It is a folklore drum that is being played, also in larger groups, for Indian festivities and dances. The bass skin is coated in a special way from the inside in order to produce a convincing bass sound. The tautness of the skins can be regulated by moving the metal rings along the strings.
