    Bendir is a large single-headed frame drum. It is used in Turkish art music ensembles. The head is made of a skin stretched over a flat wooden hoop with 60 cm diameter at most. The skin of the head can be of plastic or animal skin. However, plastic heads are preferred by musicians more because it is durable to changing weather conditions and humidity. The bendirs with large diameter are mostly used in Mevlevî music. On the other hand, bendirs with 40, 45 and 50cm diameter are more common and give the musician the opportunity to show his or her technical skills. The preferred material for the rim is walnut and mahogany.
