After (during) the Caswell Concert we decided that we really did need to go to Lark Camp in 2009. To that end, I ordered a doumbek for the belly dancing music class.

It is a large (sombati size) aluminum Alexandria (best maker in Egypt) doumbek with bright blue hot paint and six tuning bolts. This hand drum is 19.5 inches x 12.5 inches which gives it a much larger playing surface, about 10 inches, than most doumbeks. The Mylar head is not effected by temperature and humidity like fish or mammal skin heads so it will sound just as good in the redwoods as the living room.
