Ivory Pearl

The Ivory Stars Darbuka

£240

The Ivory Stars Darbuka is from our snowy Ivory Pearl collection.

The Ivory Stars Darbuka features a body of Mother of Pearl shaped star pieces, interspaced between star-bearing hexagon patterns. The design uses Mother of Pearl of a very warm colour, giving this modern style Darbuka a subtle Eastern look.

At Gawharet El Fan we focus on providing only the best Darbukas, with the best sound quality and the most stunning designs.

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.

Malik Instruments are proud to offer free international delivery on all Darbuka and Sombaty models. 

Orders are typically processed within 1 working day. Once the items are ready, they are shipped from our UK warehouse using the agreed shipping method. Typically, shipping takes 3-5 working days to arrive.

Will my Darbuka require tuning? Your Darbuka will come pre-tuned by one of our team and should stay in tune for a good amount of time to come. Darbukas are maintained by changing the skin every so often. Typical timescales to change Darbuka skins are: - Every 6 months for a Darbuka played more than an hour a day (e.g. at a professional level) - Every 12-15 months for a standard Darbuka player (e.g. a casual player who plays for leisure)
