This professional and high quality Daf is the perfect instrument for high demands. The synthetic fur, specially developed according to the typical Iranian sound model, always sounds bright and clear. It is perfectly tuned and the low weight of this frame drum allows longer playing easily.
The Daf is not only played in Sufi music, but also at many festivals and rituals. Its percussive sound ranges from tender and subtle to nuanced and voluminous. The frame drum achieves this by the countless small metal rings, which are fastened to the inside of the frame and hit during the play partly powerfully against the skin. Their spiritual background can also be recognized by the fact that all elements, of this large and light drum, are attributed with a deeper meaning. The fur symbolizes the animal kingdom, the frame the plants and the rings the world of minerals.
