All Atabaques come complete with tuning wedges and stand.
Atabaque Measurements :
Instrument height without stand: approx. 35in
Instrument height with stand: approx. 44.5in
Diameter of head: approx. 11.5in
TUNING INSTRUCTIONS :
In order to tune the Atabaque, simply tap the top of the wooden wedges (with a rubber mallet only); the force on the wedges will impinge on the lower rim by stretching ropes and consequently tuning the leather drum head.
Important: Always remove the atabaque from the stand before tuning, and remember to loosen after playing.
