The high-quality and lightweight Daf Erfan is the perfect beginner's instrument for higher demands. Ashari, who is considered one of the best Persian drum makers, has provided this Daf with a synthetic fur that sounds bright and clear. Due to its light weight of approx. 650 g it can be held effortlessly and played for a long time.
Incl. simple soft case
By the way: The Daf is not only played in Sufi music, but also at many festivals and ritual celebrations, where it is often found in large ensembles. 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.
The Daf in Contemporary Frame Drum Culture
The Daf's current appeal to international musicians is attributed to its deep historical and cultural roots.

What is the difference between the Daf and other frame drums?
