Goblet drum

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The goblet drum (also chalice drum) is a goblet shaped hand drum used mostly in Arabic, Assyrian, Persian, Balkan, Greek, Armenian, Azeri and Turkish music. Its thin, responsive drumhead and resonance help it produce a distinctively crisp sound. It is of ancient origin, and is believed by some to have been invented before the chair

Technique

Goblet drums are played with a much lighter touch and quite different strokes (sometimes including rolls or quick rhythms articulated with the fingertips) than hand drums such as the djembe, found in Africa.

 

There are two main types of goblet drums. The Egyptian style has rounded edges around the head, whereas the Turkish style exposes the edge of the head. The exposed edge allows closer access to the head so finger-snapping techniques can be done, but the hard edge discourages the rapid rolls possible with the Egyptian style.

 

The goblet drum may be played while held under one arm or by placing it between the knees while seated. It produces a resonant, low-sustain sound while played lightly with the fingertips and palm. Some players move their fists in and out of the bell to alter the tone. There are a variety of rhythms (see dumbek rhythms) that form the basis of the folkloric and modern music and dance styles of the Middle East.

 

There are two main sounds produced by the goblet drum. The first is called the 'doum'. It is the deeper bass sound produced by striking the head near the center with the length of the fingers and palm. The second is called the 'tek' and is the higher-pitched sound produced by hitting near the edge of the head with the fingertips. A 'tek' struck with the secondary hand is also known as a 'ka'. Additionally, there are more complex techniques including snaps, slaps, pops and rolls that are used to ornament the basic rhythm. Hand clapping and hitting the sides of the drum can be used in addition to drumhead sounds.

 

Another technique commonly used in Bulgaria (see Music of Bulgaria), Turkey (see:Music of Turkey), and Egypt (see Music of Egypt) is to tap with the fingers of one hand and with a thin stick in the other. In Turkey the stick is called the çubuk, which means wand, or stick. The Gypsies of most of the countries associated with the goblet drum use this technique.

 

Use in Western classical music

The first known Western classical composition to feature a goblet drum is the opera Les Troyens (1856-1858) by the French composer Hector Berlioz, which calls in the Dance of the Nubian Slaves in Act IV for a tarbuka.

 

The first compositions for goblet drum and orchestra were composed by Halim El-Dabh in the 1950s; his Fantasia-Tahmeel for goblet drum and strings was premiered in New York City in 1958, with a string orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski.

 

Notable goblet drum players

* Burhan Öçal - Turkish player fusing Roma-Balkan music with jazz, Turkish classical music, and even electronic music.

* Mısırlı Ahmet - Turkish Darbuka player (studied in Egypt and fused Turkish and Arabic technique); "split-finger" playing technique. In Turkish, Mısırlı means "the Egyptian". In Egypt he is called "Ahmet the Turk".

* Ovidiu Lipan - Romanian player, drummer of the band Transsylvania Phoenix

* Halim El-Dabh - Egyptian-born ethnomusicologist

* Hani Naser

* Hossam Ramzy - Egyptian-born traditional and jazz drummer.

* Setrak Sarkissian - Armenian Lebanese-born player featured on some of the "classic" bellydance recordings from the 1970s; simplistic technique.

* Hossein Tehrani - Persian tonbak player

* Pejman Hadadi - L.A. Based Persian Tombak player;

* Elitsa Todorova - Bulgarian female folklore musician.

* Stoyan Yankoulov - Bulgarian percussionist.

* Rony Barrak - Lebanese percussionist.

* Seido Salifoski - A Macedonian Roma player of incredible skill and mastery.

Had the opportunity to photograph a high school drumline competition this past weekend.

 

There are some truly talented young people out there!

Elise Trouw behind the scenes (filming in Insta-story for Guitar Center) in the Pearl Drums showroom at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, Orange County, California, on Saturday, January 27, 2018.

Ensiferum - what name would suit a band playing battle metal better, than a name that in Latin means "Swordbearer"?

 

After founding the band in 1995, Ensiferum's mastermind, guitarist/main songwriter/vocalist Markus Toivonen has taken the band safely through turmoils of line-up changes and busy schedules ever since. The band's career fully took flight in 2000 after Spinefarm Records released their self titled debut album 'Ensiferum', and their busy touring made them a household favourite all over Finland. Their second album 'Iron' took Ensiferum a step further, all the way to Copenhagen's Sweet Silence Studios. There in Denmark, during the Fall of 2003, their second album was recorded in the capable hands of producer Flemming Rasmussen, known for his work on such masterpieces as Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' and 'Ride the Lightning.'

 

'Iron' was a great success and grew the band's popularity to whole new heights. The album also got the band some extensive touring abroad, but these gigs finally took a toll on the band. 2004 saw three band members depart: drummer Oliver Fokin, bassist Jukka-Pekka Miettinen and vocalist Jari Mäenpää (later known for his work with Wintersun). This was not the end of the world for the warriors of Ensiferum and mastermind Markus. Instead, new and capable musicians took their places. Bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka, drummer Janne Parviainen (also known for his work on Waltari and Barathrum) and vocalist/guitarist Petri Lindroos all joined the ranks to finalise the new Ensiferum line-up.

 

The new line-up was tried and tested on the road touring all through 2005, and from the tour the members headed straight for the studio to make a new mini-album. This mini-CD, later titled 'Dragonheads', saw the band test their new growler Petri's vocals and their new bassist and drummer's skills in a recorded form. Such fun was had recording that the band did not stop with the mini-album, but also made a live DVD to honour their 10-year career. The "10th Anniversary Live" showed the new line-up playing hits from all Ensiferum albums, ranging from the earliest songs to the latest offerings of Dragonheads. Selling thousands of units worldwide, the DVD was the definitive proof that Ensiferum were as strong as ever.

 

In the end of 2006, Ensiferum took their gear to Helsinki's Sonic Pump Studios to record their third full-length album with producer Nino Laurenne. Metallic guitars combined with the traditional sounds of instruments as the Finnish kantele, bagpipes, nyckelharpa and bodhrans, the sound of 'Victory Songs' was a full, balanced mixture of folk, heavy and battle anthem-like power, accompanied by the gentle balance between Petri's growling vocals and Markus's and Sami's harmonised choruses.

'Victory Songs' was released during spring 2007 and right after the album release the band started their European tour, played several festivals and did a tour of Finland.

 

After the Summer Ensiferum again suffered a loss - the band's long-time keyboard player Meiju Enho decided to leave the band. A replacement was found in the form of Emmi Silvennoinen who has been playing with the band ever since.

 

More touring took place in the latter part of 2007, and the band stayed on the road for the whole of 2008, even playing their first ever tour in USA & Canada. Between the release of 'Victory Songs' and the beginning of 2009, the band embarked on 3 European tours, 3 North American tours and numerous festival shows around the world totalling 154 shows.

 

After being very busy writing and rehearsing new material in early 2009 Ensiferum entered studio Petrax (in Hollola, Finland) on the 13th of April to start the recordings of their fourth studio album with recorder/producer Tero Kinnunen (Nightwish, Amorphis etc.) and Janne Joutsenniemi (the producer of 'Victory Songs'). 'From Afar' was released in September 2009, with global touring to accompany.

 

In April 2012, the latest Ensiferum album 'Unsung Heroes' was completed. The album was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Amorphis etc.), with a release date set for August 24th 2012 in Finland and Germany. In September 2012, the band embarks on their Unsung Heroes Finland tour, followed by the Bearers of the Sword European tour. With more shows and tours to be announced in support of the new album, 2012 marks the beginning of a new era for Ensiferum.

Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary Ltd Edition 14" x 6.5" Snare Drum.

 

The Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary Limited Edition 14” x 6.5” Snare Drum delivers classic style and sound to celebrate 20 years of Masterworks craftsmanship.

 

1 of 20, Limited Edition Snare

 

Described by Pearl as delivering memorable vintage sound with cutting-edge quality, the Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary Snare is a truly special drum.

 

Featuring a blended maple and poplar shell with a stunning Imbuia outer veneer, this 14” snare drum offers versatile warm tone and beautiful stand out style.

 

Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary Limited Edition 14” x 6.5” Snare Drum Key Features:

 

6 ply / 7.5mm Maple/Poplar/Maple Shell

Outer Imbuia Veneer

Inner 45 Degree Bearing Edge

Black Nickel Hardware

Pearl MasterCast Hoops

STL65 Swivel Tube Lugs

SR1000 Strainer

Spin-Tight Tension Rods

Golden Ratio Air Vent

SN1420I Snare Wires

Limited Edition

 

In celebration of 20 years of Masterworks craftsmanship, Pearl have released this stunning Anniversary snare drum.

 

Pearl have decided to make only 20 of these snare drums to represent each year of the Masterworks history.

 

Perfectly highlighting the special nature of this stunning drum, the limited number available further serves to enhance the truly collectable character of the snare.

 

Maple Poplar Blend

 

The shell of this 14” x 6.5” snare drum is constructed from a blend of maple/poplar/maple to deliver a rich all-purpose sound capable of meeting the most diverse musical demands.

 

Maple is characterised by its even amounts of high and mid frequencies combined with a warm low-end response.

 

Meanwhile, poplar offers softer highs and mids with a boosted warm bottom end for a smooth and even tone.

 

The complementary combination of the two woods works to create a luscious snare drum sound filled with deep, full warmth.

 

A brilliant option for recording, the robust bottom end warmth makes this snare ideal for capturing chunky depth of tone in the studio.

 

Impressive Imbuia

 

Delivering an aesthetic that’s as impressive as it’s smooth warm tone, this Pearl limited edition anniversary snare features a beautiful Imbuia outer veneer.

 

Featuring a natural grained aesthetic with a rich deep brown colour, the Imbuia finish of the snare drum exudes high end class.

 

With a sleek, gloss-like aesthetic, the Imbuia veneer finish provides a truly classic look reminiscent of expensive furniture and luscious vintage interior design.

 

The 14” x 6.5” snare is adorned with all black nickel hardware which works to perfectly accentuate the deep colour of the shell.

 

Adding a modern touch to the classic aesthetic of the shell, the use of the modern black hardware with the vintage vibe veneer serves to celebrate the Pearl Masterworks history while giving a nod to the present and future.

 

Inner 45s

 

The shell of this special limited-edition snare is finished with inner 45 degree bearing edges to provide modern projection and attacking articulation.

 

While the maple and poplar combine to deliver robust low-end tone, the 45-degree edges serve to inject some cutting attack to the snare sound.

 

Offering focused projection to help you cut through the mix, the inner 45 edges help the maple/poplar shell to sing with attack and sustain.

 

MasterCast Hoops

 

Pearl have adorned the stunning Imbuia snare with their MasterCast Hoops to add improved focus to the snare sound.

 

Featuring a design similar to that of a die cast hoop, the MasterCast Hoops deliver precise control for a snare sound with accurate response.

 

Swivel Tube Lugs

 

In addition to providing a super sleek aesthetic, the Swivel Tube Lugs fitted on the Pearl 20th Anniversary Snare are designed to aid tuning accuracy.

 

Far from standard tube lugs, the Pearl swivel lugs feature an integrated swivel nut that keeps the tension rods perfectly aligned in order to prevent binding or choking.

 

The result is a set of tension rods that are easy and smooth to adjust and that help you to achieve pure tone with accurate and precise tuning.

 

Whatever sound you require or whatever your preferred tone, the swivel tube lugs enable you to precisely pin point the exact sound you’re after.

 

Spin-Tight Tension Rods

 

Working in conjunction with the Swivel Tube Lugs, the Pearl Masters limited edition snare also comes complete with spin-tight tension rods.

 

Featuring an innovative design to help maintain your desired tuning settings, the spin tight tension rods are essentially a tension rod-within-a-tension rod.

 

Basically, what this means is, you have your standard tension rod frame, but within it there is a smaller hex headed tension rod that can be locked in place.

 

So, when it comes to tuning the Pearl snare you set your tuning with a normal drum key, then lock the tension rods into place with a special hex style key to secure your settings.

 

This allows tunings to be controlled under high-impact playing, so that no matter how hard you hit you can rely on the spin tight tension rods to keep your snare sound locked in.

 

Finishing Touches

 

Finally, the Pearl Masterworks limited edition snare is fitted with a Golden Ratio Air Vent to further enhance the classy aesthetic of the drum.

 

The snare also features a Pearl SR1000 Strainer to deliver smooth adjustment and sensitivity control of the 20 strand snare wires.

 

Summary

 

Combining stunning sound with truly classy style, this Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary Snare Drum is a genuine limited edition.

 

One of only 20 to ever be made, the Pearl Masterworks anniversary Imbuia snare is a collector’s item for any snare or Pearl drums lover.

 

The maple/poplar shell construction ensures a versatile range of tone filled with full warmth, while the 45 degree bearing edges inject some modern attack and projection to the sound.

 

The all black hardware perfectly accentuates the stunning deep brown of the Imbuia outer veneer to provide a stylishly sophisticated aesthetic.

 

Add to that the innovative designs of the sound enhancing hardware and this is a snare drum that is at the top end of style, sound and functionality.

 

For a limited-edition snare with classy style and stunning sound, buy the Pearl Masterworks 20th Anniversary 14” x 6.5” Snare Drum.

 

To commemorate this significant milestone we've build only 20 special snares, representing each year of the Masterworks history.

This year we are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of our Masterworks series. This series is a true masterpiece and a culmination of everything we've learned for the past 70 years. To commemorate this significant milestone we've build only 20 special snares, representing each year of the Masterworks history.

 

The idea for the shell composition came to us when we were looking back at the old school drums from the 60s and 70s. It delivers a memorable vintage sound with a cutting-edge quality. Thanks to the Swivel Tube lugs this Anniversary snare pampers its owner with a truly classic look, whereas black hardware and a wood finish give the design a modern touch. Contributing to its excellence from a technical point of view this snare is equipped with the SR1000 snare strainer and the Spin Tight Rods.

 

The nucleus of this 20th Anniversary snare is a 6ply Maple/Poplar/Maple shell with an outer Imbuia veneer. The choice of Imbuia wood makes this snare even more special than it already is.
