Tupan Drum, 20x15 inches, Bolt Tuned. The tupan is a large two-headed drum that is played with mallets. It has many names depending on the country and region. Other names for the Tupan are Daouli, Davul, Dawul, and Tabl Baladi.

The drum hangs from around the player's neck, sideways. The left and right heads are struck with two different sticks, the dominate hand holds the thick stick the other hand holds the lighter stick. In this way the two sticks produce rhythmic patters of different pitches. These drums are commonly used in the folk music at auspicious occasions such as weddings.

This Mid-East Tupan is 20" in diameter (without including the bolts) and 15" wide (from head to head). This version is bolt tuned and includes a shoulder strap, tuning tool and beaters.

Today they are common in Bulgarian folk music, where they are known as Tupan. In Turkey they are called davul or tabl baladi. This instrument is most often an accompanying instrument used to mark the rhythm, but it can be played solo as well. The two heads of the drum are played with two beaters. The dominate hand plays the accented beats with the larger thicker beater, called a tokmak. The end of the tokmak may be rapped in cloth to create a muted sound. The other hand holds the thinner switch and plays rapid rhythms. An accomplished drummer will get various sounds from different parts of the two heads, as well as rapping the wooden body.
