Tombak- Halifax, India
The Tombak, also called Zarb is originally a Persian instrument. The drum I used is actually a copy from India that differs in some points from the traditional original:
A thinner skin was used. That gives more overtones to the sound.
The tube at the end of the body is wider than usual. This results in a higher resonance frequency
of the body.
