Pro-quality dayan heads (the same good quality that we use on our Varanasi tabla sets). These heads tend to have a nice thick syahis (gob) and soft/tender chat. Good quality skins, very durable.
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. For best results and for a perfect fit, use our measuring guide, click here.

I replaced my broken 5 1/8" head with this one (5 1/4") which works very well. I can tune it up to a C, perhaps even higher but I haven't tried. The skin is smooth and it rings very well. It's a pleasure to play.
Ordered a head for my 5.75 Muktadas dayan shell. Well made head. Very clean. After installing, the sound is so beautiful. . .Unbelievably better than when the tabla was new. The shyahi is not as thick as a previous head I ordered from Kala Kendar, however, the sound is so resonant and sweet that I can't really complain. Highly recommend these banaras heads. And the attention and service from Mickey was superb. Thank you Mickey.
Tabla Dayan head
Tabla dayam head that I ordered was good
Good quality. Syahi is not very thick but decent. Sounds good and has a good sustain!
Shipping fast. Good service. Good product.
new concert tabla
I bought 2 of these. One is on a dodgy old mango wood shell, and sounds ok (not the head's fault, the shell is a but rough hewn) but I have to pull it some more. The other one is fabulous however, and is my new D concert tabla.
Have not recieved it yet...
Have not recieved it yet...please give me a tracking number or more information on when it will arrive. Thank You!
Its perfect for me
It's only the second head I've bought but it's great.
Very Great Sounding skin
I usually use the mukhta das skins, and was a little hesitant to the change but i find this skin to be very very good, especially the shahi! its nice and thick. Again a great recommendation by Mikey. Regards Harpreet Singh
