Dome Manjeeras / Kartals

VEGAN

Manjeeras are cymbals made of cast brass. In Bengal and eastern India they are also called kartals. They are clinked together, generating a very powerful, high-pitched, piercing, metalic sound, often with slight beats.

Traditionally, manjeeras are not tuned to a specific pitch. However, our special dome manjeeras are tuned as close as possible to certain notes, based on a = 440 hertz. This can be very useful for professional musicians in concerts and recordings.They are dome-shaped throughout with no flat rims and therefore require a slightly different playing technique than traditional flat manjeeras. With their high-pitched, lasting sound they can also be played individually with mallets like small bells.
