Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Indian junior dholak

Traditionally used as an accompaniment for Indian classical dance, the dholak is now used in a huge number of global musical styles. This dholak from the Percussion Plus Honestly Made range has a simple design with easy rope tension tuning.

Featuring a brightly coloured exterior, this instrument is the perfect addition to any classroom’s percussion selection or even a festival! It is an ideal tool for teaching about culture and rhythm, all through playing.

These Junior dholaks are sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments, not toys, and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

Simple yet effective design

The drum skins are adjustable to raise or lower the pitch of the drum. To adjust, simply move the metal rings further up the drums to tighten, and vice versa to loosen. This makes it easy to adjust at any time, even during a performance. However, once the drum has been tuned to its desired pitch, the metal rings stay secure for stable tuning.

Playing the dholak

Made from mango wood, the projection and tone on this dholak is quite impressive. It is best played either by placing it in your lap on a seat, or under your knee when sitting on the floor. Typically performed using bare hands only, some styles do call for the addition of a metal ring (not included).

  • Agreeing a fair price Use of recycled materials
