14" x 24". Wooden two-headed drum with one synthetic head and one goat skin head. The shells are manufactured in the northern Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. There locally grown neem and rosewood are used. After transporting to Mumbai one goat skin and one synthetic heads are fitted to the drum shells. Cords and rings tune the skin head; nuts and bolts tune the synthetic head.

Held horizontally, both heads are played with beaters. The most common rhythm played on the dhol is the Chaal, which consists of 8 beats per measure. The stick used to play the bass side of the drum is a thicker and is bent in a quarter-circular arc on the end that strikes the drum, the dagga. The other stick is much thinner and flexible and used to play the higher note end of the drum, the thili.

The dhol is used in folk music from the northern Indian State of Punjab. It provides the percussion for the popular Pujab folk dance called the Bhangra; which has now gained popularity across India.
