Tar & Bendir Frame Drums
Latin Percussion has added to its collection of world percussion instruments with a new range of frame drums that include the Tar and Bendir. Based on some of the most ancient musical instruments, the new Tar and Bendir Frame Drums have been designed and crafted to honor the traditional instruments of North Africa and the Middle East. They’re played in a vertical stance on the lap using mainly one hand for accented beats and the other to hold the position and add finger rolls. The frame drums are tunable, offered in diameters of 14, 16, 18 and 20 inches and finished in Black Fade. Each features comfortable, rounded thumb slots with through-shell tuning systems for easy playing and longterm durability. The synthetic head provides long-lasting pitch.
