More About Frame Drums

The frame drum is one of the most ancient Middle Eastern musical instruments, making it a unique and special purchase for anyone interested in the region’s music.  Frame drums are usually constructed with a wooden frame around the round body, and metal rings may be attached, similar to a tambourine.  Traditionally it is handheld, and made from the skin of goat or deer.  Many Daffs now have plastic skins across them too.
