A well made, Concert grade Tabla Set, reviewed by many professional musicians including Zakir Hussain and Anindo Chatterjee. Vijay Vhatkar tabla sets are setup the traditional Mumbai way, nice heavy shyie with thick and very durable skins and straps. We currently import his #1 Tabla sets exclusively. The set includes a heavy, well seasoned hardwood Dayan, a heavy weight copper bayan and our deluxe hard rings and covers. All drums are completely set up by us before shipping.

The drums arrived in a timely fashion and well packed. The set is clearly well made and of high quality. The daya was tuned very, very low. I think most players expect to have to pull the straps on a new instrument, but just a warning to those new to tabla. Once tuned up the daya sounds very nice, although it has a very slight buzz. I do not mind the slight buzz, but some do not like this sound. The baya is very heavy. Definitely the heaviest I have seen as well as my guru. The baya has an edge to the sound, with a bit of growl to the ge sound. It also has a lot of sustain. It sounds quite different from my other baya, but I like it. If you are looking for a smooth baya tone, this may not be the baya for you. If you're looking for a lot of sustain from your baya this might be the right one for you.
