Below are some of the scores of spontaneous comments I have received about these extraordinary sacred objects. DamaWorks damarus are now in the U.S., Canada, England, Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, Russia, Thailand, Nepal, Australia and more!

“The damaru and related items arrived today and I could not be more pleased. The drum is a true work of art and a delight to play. Outstanding sustained tone, light weight and a very comfortable soft leather strap (much superior to the standard brocade). The chopen is beautifully designed and constructed and looks wonderful with the drum. An unexpected pleasure. The domra and Rigdzin Shamo are equally excellent in design and materials”

I thoroughly appreciated the quality, sound and the blessings thanks. Absolutely no comparison with the Nepali drums….if there is anyone there who would like a quality Chod Damaru, I will not hesitate to recommend you. Certainly will be letting people know from where authentic Damarus can be obtained’

Just wanted to let you know that I received the holy items today. Oh my sweet dakinis! They are exquisite. I have always appreciated your work, but I think it was only today that I realized what an incredible gift this is to the community of practitioners. With much happiness and gratitude, and prayers for the success of all your dharmic enterprises…

” I just wanted to let you know I got the drum I ordered today and it looks great. The sound is wonderful and the thickness of the drum makes it much better balanced than others I have used. Thanks for the great product.”

Dear Jinpa–The new damaru is an inspiration to play, a real treat after using its predecessor for years.

“I am really impressed with the quality of workmanship; no detail spared, even down to the careful hand sewing on the cases. It is obvious great love went into the making of these items. Beautiful”
“I am so happy about these wonderful instruments. I thought that they might be good but they are more than perfect”

I received my kangling today!!!! And I must say it is such a fine piece of art and healing….I cleared my thoughts and blew into the kangling, the sound is so rich!!!! And after feeling a sense of calm….wow, this thing WORKS. And the case…..unbelievable quality! That was a nice added bonus….I can attach it to my robe, this is wonderful!
I wanted to thank you again for providing the opportunity for me to get a HIGH QUALITY alternative to bone. I was never able to get a straight answer from people selling bone kanglings as to their origin, which is why I opted for wood, but I never expected this such high quality!
