    Hello David……I have just dicovered you and your music, and I am simply in awe. Your music is BEAUTIFUL and its so very wonderful of you to share instructional tutorials here and on YouTube. I happened across one of your tutorials for Hang when I was listening to things by Hang Massive (Danny Cudd). I am fascinated with your work (or rather I should say, your play!) and am greatly enjoying listening to everything. It is very nice of you to show such detailed tutorials and they are very easy for even a beginner to follow. I have always wanted a Hang and a Cajon, but can’t yet afford one, so my budding talent, if I have any, will have to wait. Maybe for my 50th birthday. . Thank you for being so open and sharing your talent! You have a beautiful spirit.

    Hey Mike,

    Valter is going through some changes in his production. Best option is to check out his website and contact him directly.

    Hi David!
    Really like you Page and your Videos.
    Also love what you do in the Susanne Weinert composisitions. It’s really inspiring.
    I saw that you use products from Valter Percussion. Did you ever play the Okta Cajon? Is there a distributer in Germany, cause shipping from Sweden to Austria is really really expensive. Thanks Mike

    Hi François,

    it’s a Kevork from Libanon. Size and jingle configuration is not different from most other riqs though, but the instrument is definitely amazing.
    They are really hard to get nowadays, your best option would be to call Kevork by phone (use google to find his number) and keep trying until you reach him.
    Good luck :)

    absolut magical , merci merci merci

    hi david

    i would like to know where i can buy the riq you use.
    i think that it’s you who made it.he’s smaller than traditionnal riq,he has more jingles…
    this is the one with a plastic skin with an arabic writing on the skin.like on the Haten Ammous video.
    Could you say me the brand of this riqq.i would have the same…
    Thanks a lot for yo answer and all the videos you show to us.
    thanks a lot
    one of you fan
    François
