Our manufacturers are the world-renown Darbuka makers based in Cairo, Gawharet El Fan. Middle Section of The Sapphire Orchid Darbuka / Doumbek

Individually crafted Mother of Pearl designs

Each Mother of Pearl piece has to be placed by hand on the Darbuka's aluminium shell. The Pearl Hues models then use coloured glosses to finish the Darbuka in awesome coloured hues. 

Inside of The Sapphire Orchid Darbuka / Doumbek

Glitter finished inner shell

The inside of the Darbuka is finished in a smooth glitter finish, to ensure maximum resonance when sound is transmitted through the Darbuka body.

Tuning System of The Sapphire Orchid Darbuka / Doumbek

Internal tuning system

The internal tuning system allows the Darbuka to be kept in tune at all times. As it is internal, the tuning lugs are not exposed and hence do not reduce the playable section of the Darbuka by interfering with the Tek or Ka strokes.

As to be expected with all handmade instruments, there may be some minor variations in design, slight imperfections on the body and some small scratches on the Darbuka head. This will not affect the quality of the sound in any way. All items are new and have not been previously used. Darbukas, like most instruments, require tuning and should be played/tuned regularly for the first few weeks until the head sets fully and the true beauty of the sound starts to shine through.
