The qas'ah baladi (KAh-sah bah-LAH-dee) was a large Zakharan kettle drum.[1]


These drums were crafted from fire-hardened clay. Tough hides were usually used to cover their heads, though sometimes extremely thin metal was used. The large size of the qas'ah baladi made it inconvenient to transport.[1]


Qas'ah baladi were used by mamluks throughout the Free Cities of Zakhara and often saw use in Hiyal and Huzuz when important announcements were needed.[1]
