A classic Dhapa-stick with beautiful high-end finish, thin wall and open bore. The backpressure is medium, the instrument is responsive and easy-to-play. The mouthpiece is quite large, I had to use some wax to make it comfortable. The sound becomes alive after the instrument warms up, and it is fun-to-play. A good choice for both contemporary and traditional players.
Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3.2-3.5cm
