daf vs. dap?[edit]

Daf and dap are used interchangeably in the beginning of the article; Google searching revealed little as far as which is more popular, so can an expert make a judgement as to which is more widely-used in English? Little.spoon 18:46, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

daf vs. dap?(Answer)[edit]

Both are right but Dap is the old name while Daf is the name whsich is used these days. Actually no one uses Dap these days and all the Iranian call it DAF.

Dap history[edit]

2 weeks ago when i check here it was long history of Daf but now!!!!! nothing who did remove it?

quiz of the year[edit]

concerning the edit I would like to ask the editors of this page: how important is mentioning "A daf is depicted on thebank note X of country Y". If it is why not putting: Book X in the year Y in page Z pictured a Daf. I am sure we find many references. Or more interestingly, the company A made a panty in the year Y selling Z picturing a daf... Come on let us take articles seriously.--Xashaiar (talk) 16:43, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

In my opinion, the fact that the Azerbaijani government considers this musical instrument of enough symbolic significance to depict it in its currency is interesting to our readership, and worthy of mention in a single, short sentence.
You cannot sensibly compare a government's decision to showcase the instrument as a symbol of a culture (for that is what the banknote depiction connotes) with everyday depictions in random books or products.
To be honest, I cannot understand why this fact wouldn't belong in the article.
I'm not sure whether it should be mentioned in the history section (diff.); I would prefer to do it at the end of the lead section (diff.). But that can be discussed, and a new section on "Daf in Azerbaijan" can always be created. - Best, Ev (talk) 18:24, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

I've given a third opinion over at Talk:Tar (lute). --Eivind (t) 18:29, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Daf belongs to Canaan tribes, why do Persians think it is their own instrument. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:29, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
