Buy Indian Pakhawaj
Pakhawaj NO.43 Medium size: The pakhawaj and mridang are double sided drums very similar, the mridang is just a little smaller. They are the main rythm accompaniement of Dhrupad. The body of the pakhawaj is made of one piece of tun (Cedrela tuna), or shisham (Dalgergia Sissoo). Hollow, the body has two opertures of different size, one, small, that will generate high pitched sounds and another, wider, for low pitched sounds. The amazing musicality of the pakhawaj comes from the expression of bols or specific strikes from one or both hands.
