Apart from our Five Star Dholaks (with rope laces and nuts and bolts tuning system) we have a premium quality instrument with a very good sound. A lower priced alternative that can be recommended.

The Dholak is a very popular double skin drum from Northern Indian folk music. The difference in diameter of high skin and bass skin is relatively small. In order to receive a strong bass sound all the same, the bass skin is weighed down by a special paste inside.

Contrary to many other Indian drums, the Dholak has simple smooth skins on both sides. In this way it can be played not only in the differentiated finger stroke techniques that are common in India, but also with the full hand, similar to many African and South American drums. Both skins are strung by a cotton rope lace that runs through shiftable metal rings. The Dholak has been built since about 1300 AD and is used in folk music, opera, kawoali, light songs or also in film soundtracks. It is being played in the Punjab Village that is very well-known in India, in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in folk songs; in Bengal in opera and in poetic songs.

There are manufacturers galore who make different Dholaks in all price categories. We offer three selected Dholaks with excellent sound qualities, especially the two Five Star Dholaks.
