Same great quality heads used on all our Calcutta Professional tabla sets. Hand-made heads, good quality, made in Kolkata. Be certain to measure the diameter of the wooden barrel (for best results, remove the old head) and not the diameter of the entire tabla head.

Put this on an old Calcutta shell from the mid-90s. Sounds great (I prefer smaller baya shells). Good tone and sustain. Will improve with age.

My budget bayan sounds much better with this head. A risk worth taking; I will be relying on you for heads in the future but with any luck that won't be for a while.
