Darbuka Skin Types
We are proud to offer a very wide variety of synthetic Darbuka skins, from 3 main families:
Gawharet El Fan
The simple and basic synthetic plastic skin, which all Egyptian Darbukas already come with from the manufacturer.
Considered to give the crispest sound, original and authentic quality.
Available in all standard sizes: 8.75” (for classic and New Generation Darbukas), 9” (for Sombaty) and 10.5” (for Dohola).
This Egyptian synthetic plastic skin is considered to be stronger and more durable than the original ones. Performers often prefer this model for stronger strokes. Power Beat skins come in Black, White or Clear. They are available in two sizes: 8.75” (for classic and New Generation Darbukas) and 9” (for Sombaty Darbukas).
Remo’s name is world-famous, and it’s considered to be the leading brand for drum skins, not just in the Arabic music market.
Professional drummers choose Remo skins for their durability and highest standards.
Remo skins are available in a very wide variety of colors and designs, such as “Fish Skin” or “RENAISSANCE”.
Available sizes are 8.75” (for classic and New Generation Darbukas), 9” (for Sombaty) and 10” (for Dohola).
