Persian Drum Instruments

Persian drums establish the rhythm of Persian traditional music. Our catalogue includes three categories of Persian drum being Daf, Tombak and Azeri Dayereh. All those percussion instruments are under membranophone family. Daf and Dayareh are both frame drums, though Azeri Dayareh’s sound is deeper. Daf and Dayareh are used in varied social situations, from performances of Persian classical music to performances of street entertainers. Dayareh never lost its central role in the classical and popular styles of Azeri music. As for Tombak (or Zarb) it is a goblet-shaped, wooden drum with a richer sound comparing to the frame drums. All Persian drums we sell are hand-made, constructed by masters. Besides their quality, the ornaments on our Persian drums are also attractive and reflect Persian culture.
