There is a moratorium on the wood used in tablas. Shisham wood is now considered a part of exotic species of plants. It is now very hard to export shisham tablas out of India. Shisham is a part of Dalbergia plant species. Hence have moved to a wood that produces as good a sound as Shisham.
This tabla set comes with a Neem/Mahogany Bombay tabla (with a good thick strap and nice durable head) and a 2 kilo brass baya. These are the best regular drums we have ever received. After we setup and tune each tabla and baya these drums sound quite resonant. These are perfect as a student tabla set, starter tabla set or a good practice tabla set.
These drums could last you years with only minimal maintenance.
Included with this set are a padded vinyl bag, deluxe rings and covers, and a deluxe hammer: a $110 value.
