Reheaded a tabla with good results :)

 

I reheaded this tabla last week and was very pleased with the results. Should be able to get this one up to D. The skin was from Harkiratji and sounds great. Took much less tension than the Kolkata pudis I’ve been used to. The top end is slightly less bright but it has more of what they call the ‘full’ sound. It’s hard to keep it in tune though. One thing I struggle with is getting the end section of the strap to be tight. Getting enough tension before tying it off is very hard. Anyway, really hope this one lasts!
