Product Overview

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.

    Excellent Head

    Posted by Ashish from Pennsylvania on 9th Jun 2020

    Good quality. Syahi is not very thick but decent. Sounds good and has a good sustain!

    new concert tabla

    Posted by Ed from Toronto on 14th Jun 2018

    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.

    Very Great Sounding skin

    Posted by Harpreet from Brampton on 10th Jan 2016

    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

    Best sounding skin ever :)

    Posted by Deepak Lal from Australia on 4th Feb 2015

    My Benaras 5.50 inch skin arrived few days ago and reheaded it on my 5.50 inch benaras tabla shell ( also ordered from Kala Kendar and received few weeks ago). The skin that I had for a long time that I fitted on the 5.50 shell sadly crashed due to bad qualitiy even though it was given to me for free by a friend. That's why I ordered a skin for my shell. I fitted the Benares skin on, I let it settle with the shell for 2 days, today I tuned it to C# and it sounds so good that it sounds like a custom made tabla for the Ustads and Pandits. Another amazing thing about this 5.50 skin is it also sounds great on lower pitches such as A#, A, G# or even lower due to the thickness of the siyahi even though it's designed to be tuned to C#. Thanks very much Mickey for choosing the skin for me. Kala Kendar is the best place to shop. Regards Deepak Lal

    Best Tabla Head

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Jan 2014

    I had a old Dayan without a top and I really wanted a banares head. I ordered this and it sounded great. I am going to buy some more from kala kendar!
