Delightful crisp clear sound.

SKU: moktak-drum Category:


This Korean moktak drum is a lovely piece of craftsmanship, carved from beautiful apricot wood.  It comes with a wooden striker.  The sound of this instrument is crisp and excellent.  Unlike the typical Japanese moktak, this moktak is made to be hand-held, and comes with a generous hand grip.

Moktaks are known as a Fish Drums, for they are roughly in the shape of a fish.  It is customarily used to keep time for chanting and reminds practitioners to be wakeful during their recitation.  A fish never sleeps!  Our Moktak is made by a craftswoman in Korea. The attractive stamp is the Chinese character for “Sky.”

You can find more on the background and use of the moktak here.

7.25″ long, 4″ wide, 3.5″ tall, 14 oz. weight.

  1. it’s a wonderful instrument and designed with care.

  2. Absolutely fantastic. It’s our new door knocker. Works like a champ. Thank you so much for this lovely work of the heart.

  3. A stunningly beautiful object with a clear, bright, full sound. I couldn’t be happier with it!

  4. Also very nice sound. I can’t imagine how they managed to hollow out the carving. It is whole, not two halves joined, unless the seam is completely invisible. Thank you.
