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.”

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

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

  2. 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.
