Our Alexandria Doumbek, Inlay, Design 2, is an Egyptian doumbek. 11" wide X 17.5" tall, and has a 8.5" playing surface. The aluminum shell is hand painted with a hafla scene. Male and female figures are inlayed into a background of real mother of pearl. The clear standard synthetic head is tuned with 6 tuning bolts in the collar. Design 2 shows solitary male figure reclining with his hookah. He is attended to by three women, while two others entertain with dance and music. Soft rose and green highlights accent the mother of pearl background, making this drum a work of art.
Actual weight 9 pounds. Tuning tool, padded nylon case and extra standard synthetic head included. Decorations and color may differ from photo. All mosaic inlays are delicate. It is not uncommon for small pieces of mosaic to dislodge. This is especially true around the edges and on the collar. With a drum’s curving surface, this is to be expected. Missing inlay is not considered a defect or blemish. Your drum is unique and small irregularities should just be considered birth marks.
