Santoori Customer review about Iranian Daf no.1s

Hello Pooyan,

Many Greetings, I have some good news the drums have arrived from Germany today. I have to say I am the happiest man in London at this moment; the drums are really fantastic I am very very pleased with them as you promised they are of very good quality.

Thank you so much for everything, it has been very good doing business with you.

I would like to say also that the tone of the Khorshidsavar is wonderful, good rich and mellow bass with a good tak which balances the sound of the drum well, and the rings are not to sharp. It's light in weight and very responsive to the fingers.

The skin daf is also very good and thank you for taking time to choose one that suits the very humid conditions in England. The skin is nice and tight and has good all round sound.

Both drums are a pl
easure to play and to own.

On Monday I have a Frame Drum Festival, I will do all I can to promote your drums in our Sufi Daf workshop, I am sure many people will like these drums.

I hope to you have a good weekend, and hope to buy another drum from you in the future.

Thank you so much Pooyan

Best wishes

Santoori Customer review about Iranian Daf

Dear Pooyan,

Yesterday my lovely drum arrived in my home. I am absolutely rapt with it and love it very much. Thank you soooooooooooo much for all your help and attention to detail. My drum arrived in perfect condition and I can't wait to learn to play it. Of course, I have been practicing the darbuka but this is something entirely different so will have to work hard to learn how to play it.

Thank you again and I will be happy to recommend you to anyone.

Santoori's Customer review about Iranian Daf no.1s

Dear Parham,

I wanted to let you know that the Daf arrived today and it is absolutely beautiful. This instrument was a present for my son who is a percussionist and since it arrived he has been practicing for many hours with one of the books and dvds that you sent. This Daf will be very well loved and will see much use.

Many, many thanks!

Santoori's Customer review about Iranian Daf no.3

Khorshidsavar Daf Review

If like me you have a passion to play percussion instruments, namely the Daf and you live in part of the world which is prone to humidity then you will understand the problems which one encounters during the Spring and Summer... the skin of your Daf becomes a receptacle for humidity. You simply can not play it and you end up putting the Daf into hibernation until the humid conditions dry away... very frustrating indeed!

I had thought about buying a synthetic Daf for a long time but always refrained from doing so principally because I did not like the idea of playing a "fake" Daf... playing something which has been made from synthetic material opposed to playing something which has been made from natural skin. I have always liked the idea that playing a natural skin percussion instrument is like bringing the animate out of the inanimate! Anyhow, due to my frustration of not been able to play my Daf during humid conditions I decided to take a closer look at the abundant selection of synthetic Dafs offered by

I had one in mind but I was unsure so I thought the best thing to do was to ask Pooyan for some advice. He kindly sent me an Mp3 of two different synthetic Dafs... my choice and Pooyan's choice! To be honest after hearing the Mp3 I did not know which one to choose, so I simply said to Pooyan, "Ok I'll take your choice, if you think this one is better, I trust your decision".

One week later... the Khorshidsavar Daf arrived, as usual it was perfectly packed! I have to say that initially it felt a bit strange playing a "synthetic" Daf but after a couple of days the strangeness disappeared! Naturally one can clearly hear the difference between a natural skin Daf and a synthetic skin Daf... a natural skin Daf is "crème de la crème". Anyhow the synthetic Daf is very pleasing and I have to say its the best one can get to a natural skin Daf. The Khorshidsavar Daf has a excellent rounded bass sound (Doum stroke) and a rich tone sound (Ta stroke) which comes very close to the sound of a Natural skin Daf. If you would like to play a Daf all year round without having to worry about humidity then may I suggest a synthetic Daf... namely Khorshidsavar! It is a more than good choice... just ask Pooyan, he will guide you and I don't think that you'll be disappointed!

On the whole, I'm very pleased and satisfied with the Daf... and once again with the impeccable service provided by Pooyan @ Pooyan's knowledge, advice, and suggestions have been invaluable to say the least.

Thank you very much indeed
