Armenia (Middle East)

Pronounced (" duh-hole "), is an Armenian cylinder drum traditionally covered with goatskin on both sides, one high and one low in pitch. Seen here is a pre-fabricated head which is unaffected by changes in humidity, unlike natural skin. Played with the fingers and hands, the "dhol," rests in your lap and sets off to one side with one arm resting on top of the drum.
