The tabla is a traditional Indian percussion instrument consisting of a pair of drums. It is comprised of two drums: the smaller drum, known as the “dayan,” and the larger drum, called the “bayan.” Tablas are typically made from high-quality wood, such as rosewood or sheesham, which gives them durability and a polished appearance. The drums feature tightly stretched skins, often made from goat or buffalo, which produce a resonant and clear sound. Tablas can be finely tuned using wooden dowels and a hammer to achieve the desired pitch. When playing the tabla, traditional cushions and straps are used to secure the drums in place. A used tabla in great condition would show minimal signs of wear and tear, as it has been well-maintained to preserve its structural integrity and performance quality.
