Item Specifications:
 
Playing Surface: Tenor: 6.5" and Bass: 8.25" 
 
Body: Stained wooden shell with linear etching.
 
Heads: Drum heads are made from goatskin. The dholak's higher-pitched tenor head is a simple membrane while the bass head, usually played with the left hand, has a load inside that is a mixture of tar, clay and sand (dholak masala) which lowers the pitch and provides a well-defined tone. Both heads are tucked in a wooden hoop. 
 
Tuning: Rope with rings
