The Bendir is a traditional frame drum used throughout North Africa. Its shell is made of (very light) acacia wood and its head, of (very tight) goat or plastic skin. It is generally equipped with a snare (made of gut) stretched across its head, which gives the instrument a distinctive buzzing sound when the hand hits the skin.

This model is a genuine, adjustable Bendir with plastic head, made in Fès by experienced craftsmen.
Larger than the goatskin Bendir, it is also more powerful and you can tune it with a spanner. You can play it in open air and in wet conditions, without fearing any tension loss.

Wood: acacia
Head: (white or transparent) plastic
Diameter: 16”

Excellent 16" bendir

This is a great bendir with traditional Moroccan sound. Easy to adjust the tuning with 5mm hex key (not supplied with drum). The buzz of the snare is also easy to adjust by pulling on the strings to vary the tension.
Also, nice craftsmanship.
I think they come in different colours – I asked the shop for a similar colour to the drum in the picture and received one in black and gold, with translucent white head.
I've had it for half a year and I'm very happy with it.

      La finition du bendir n'est vraiment pas au rendez-vous, mais cela était bien mentionné (je n'avais qu'à mieux lire) ce qui explique un trou dans le cadre, ce dernier étant masqué par une visse des plus fort laide qui dépasse du cadre (comme le montre les photo). De plus, la peau présente des traces de rayures importantes et assez profondes et sur le diamètre totale de la peau.
      Bref je suis déçu, pensant faire une petite affaire mais pour ce prix j'étais prévenu d'avance.
