Two large natural skin heads stretched over a light-weight plywood body, gives this 8 1/4 pound tupan a deep booming voice. This version is bolt tuned with shoulder strap. Similar large double-headed frame drums have been used in ceremonies, festivals, and in wars throughout the Middle East for centuries; such tupans accompanied Alexander the Great’s armies as the marched from Macedonia east to the Indus River. Today they are common in Bulgarian folk music, where they are known as Tupan. In Turkey they are called davul or tabl baladi
