Toca 12 in. Jamal Doumbek
Watch a video demonstration of this doumbek:
Toca's Jamal Doumbek is a fitting tribute to its namesake: master doumbek player and educator Jamal Mohamed. The stellar Lebanese-born percussionist has worked with such artists as Sting, Mark O'Connor, and Giovanni Hidalgo, and he's a member of such notable ensembles as D'Drum and Brahma. Now Jamal has collaborated with Toca's designers to create a doumbek that clearly reflects his expertise and originality.
The innovative design of the Jamal Doumbek starts with a fiberglass shell that offers durability and resonance as well as proper balance for playing comfort. Adding to the drum's durability is a rubber bottom edge that protects the shell against unexpected bumps. Fitted atop the shell is a pre-stretched synthetic head that provides great playing response and a wide frequency range while eliminating tuning hassles. The result of this combination is a drum that produces deep "doum" (bass) sounds and articulate, penetrating "tek" (high) sounds that are sure to suit the most stringent musical applications.
