Frame Drums
The Bendir from Morocco is similar to the Egyptian Tar except for the addition of snares on the inside of the head that create a buzzing sound when the head is struck. The Indian Kanjira is a small tambourine with a lizard-skin head that creates dipping tones when pressed by the thumb of the holding hand. The American Indian framedrum is usually played with a soft mallet.
