Latanaara's Musical Wonders, Muspar'i
*Note -- I'm not posting tools, just instruments. Also, you will note some differences in the Muspar'i shops, as they are more akin to merchants than stores, from a mechanics standpoint. This is reflected in their references.
- a polished ebonwood tapani fitted with silver knotwork filligree - 2200 L
- Look Description - The tapani is a double-sided drum formed of a circle of ebonwood that has been riveted with knotwork circles woven from silver wire. The hide stretched over each end is laced in place with lengths of stiffly braided red and black cord, the ends of the cord tucked away to carefully leave each knotwork disc unobscured.
- a golden oak darje riveted with gold and silver wire knotwork - 8500 L
- Look Description - The darje is fashioned from a membrane of leather stretched over a laminated golden oak ring that has been riveted with circular gold and silver wire knotwork. Along the edge of the darje pairs of silver disks are loosely attached, designed to clap together when the darje is struck.
- a brass tabla chased with an overall knotwork pattern - 2800 L
- Look Description - The tabla is an hourglass-shaped drum with a base somewhat smaller than the top, which has been covered with soft hide. Laces fashioned from tightly braided gold and ivory hued cords lash the hide tightly into place, securing it to the decorative chasing beneath.
- a highly polished dark mahogany tapani - 2100 L
- Look Description - The tapani is a double-sided drum formed of a circle of hardened, laminated mahogany stretched across with two pieces of hide. The hide is laced in place with lengths of stiffly braided black cord interwoven with glittery silver threads.
