Tonbak TOM.BAK.jpg Tombak made in Isfahan Percussion Other names Tonbak, donbak, domak, zarb Classification Percussion Related instruments Daf Musicians Hossein Tehrani, Ramin Rahimi The tombak (Persian: تنپک, تنبک, دنبک، تمپک‎), also tombak, tombak, donbak, dombak or Zarb (ضَرب), in Afghanistan zer baghali (زیر بغلی), is a goblet drum from Persia. It is considered the principal percussion instrument of Persian music. The tombak is normally positioned diagonally across the torso while the player uses one or more fingers and/or the palm(s) of the hand(s) on the drumhead, often (for a ringing timbre) near the drumhead’s edge. Sometimes tombak players wear metal finger rings for an extra-percussive “click” on the drum’s shell. Tombak virtuosi perform solos lasting ten minutes or more. The tombak had been used to create a goblet drum.
