Serving drummers and percussionists since 1996.



Dream Cymbals has just announced exclusive distribution in North America of a new hand drum instrument called the Wambooka. This revolutionary hand drum takes the ancient doumbek/darabuka and updates it for the 21st century.

Made from a single piece of high quality polycarbonate, through the addition of water, the Wambooka becomes a unique percussion instrument unlike any other. By bending pitches and changing the timber, you can create a myriad of offworld effects. The Wambooka blends seemlessly with both electronic and acoustic music, possessing a sound both modern and ancient. Limited only by your imagination, it needs to be heard to be believed. Street price for the Wambooka is $249 and comes with a carrying bag.

Dream Cymbals president, Andy Morris, says "I am impressed with the ingenuity and outside the box thinking behind the Wambooka and it is seriously fun to explore the range of sounds and effects it brings to an already established hand drum tradition. This is the perfect drum for those who want to explore new ways of expressing themselves with rhythm — I can’t wait to see where this goes in performance."

Dream is currently accepting orders from all of their North American dealers.
