BLEMISHED: Khol drum with fiberglass body and two different sized leather heads, one produces a low pitch and the other a high pitch. A small hole is purposely punched in the bass head for a better sound. The drum contains multiple tuning straps that hold the heads in place and can be tightened to tune each head. The fiberglass body makes it much lighter than the traditional clay bodied khol and the drum is held horizontally. Color and style may vary from photo. Popular rhythm instrument for East Indian devotional and folk music.

What is BLEMISHED?
Our product codes ending in "-1(S)" or "-2(S)" are blemished. These products are new and unused with superficial blemishes that may include, blisters in the finish, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. A "-1(S)" product has minor blemishes and a "-2(S)" product has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs. The irregularity does not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument.
Product codes ending in "-3(S)" and "-4(S)" are also new and unused, but came to us needing repairs. If it's a "-3(S)," the product has been repaired, but if it's a "-4(S)," it will still require significant repairs when received by the customer.
Our product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.
