A high quality concert dayan created by Vijay Vhatkar. The shell is a heavy, well seasoned hardwood (red shisham) built the traditional Mumbai way, nice heavy shyie with thick and very durable skins and straps. A Concert grade Tabla, reviewed by many professional musicians including Zakir Hussain and Anindo Chatterjee.  Great for performances.

    ordered a "C#" not "A"

    Posted by Ellis from Oregon on 9th Sep 2015

    I ordered a C# and it came A. I had to remove the dowels and tighten the strap a few times. I wasn't expecting it to be in tune, but geeze an "A"?

    Great loud full sound dayan

    Posted by Deepak from Australia on 15th Jan 2015

    This is my 3rd tabla piece purchase from kalakendar made by *****. My 1st purchase was a 5.50 MD concert Dayan back in 2012, 2nd purchase was MD chrome concert Bayan size 9 inches sometime last year and now this master piece professional Dayan size 5.50 inches tuned to D I got today along with the 5.50 inches Benares tabla shell. Though the MD tabla size is a bit small than 5.50. Anyways the Dayan has a loud full sound because of the heavy weight that is every tabla players demand. Thanks Mickey for choosing a great sounding tabla for me. Also the looks are great. Regards Deepak

    This tabla is awesome! I ordered two one at C and one at D with, very little tuning they ring clear as a bell. Thanks Mickey for all the help!

    Sundeep was very helpful and patient in heing me choose the right dayan. The professional dayan is excellent in every way. Now I can focus on playing and not fighting the drum. Thanks to Kala Kendar.

    No second thoughts.Go for Tablas!

    Posted by Asoka on 8th Oct 2014

    The Dayans which I bought from Kala Kendar were in its highest tonal quality and I really feel very confident while playing the tabla. Ordering the units and delivery on time by Kala Kendar were the other key factors of their service which we can rely on.

    A lovely Dayan!

    Posted by Chetna on 22nd May 2014

    This is a sweet and spirited instrument! With little effort it rings clear as a bell. The Kala Kendar team did a superlative job of sending a balanced and resonant head. Thank you! (my drum does seems a little smaller than the 5.5 that i ordered, but i'm still very satisfied.)

    Amazing MD dayan!

    Posted by Tony Singh on 16th Mar 2014

    In my opinion, they don't get any better than than the MD professional dayan. Just picked up a 5.75" C#, and a 6" C. The sound is absolutely phenomenal. Thank you Mickey for your patience, and for making this possible.

    Best Drum Ever!

    Posted by HARESH SINGH on 28th Feb 2014

    Even though I asked for 5.25 daya, they gave me a 5.50. Ah who cares! This is the best sounding drum ever...
