NEW MAKER, For those who seek a good quality dayan to add or replace to their existing Tabla Set. Made with a heavy sheasham, YES, Real sheasham, we still have stock! In combination with hand-made Varanasi skins. Hand-made skins refers to the process making the skin step by step on the actual drum bowl, this is essential for the best possible fit. This dayan produces a very clear crisp tone, and is of professional quality. You can also select the dayan size you want!

I just bought two Banarasi dayans from the shop. 1 piece was 5.25" and the other was 5.50". Both were found to be well balanced, heavy, very resonant syahi, and medium soft kinaars. That's my preference as I play in the Banarasi style. Both pieces stay tuned at their relative scales, which is every tabla player's desire. Tension balance is key as well as proper climate control in the place in which you store your instruments. I highly recommend purchasing from this vendor.
