TAAL Professional Neem wood tabla’s are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional Sheesham, which was added to the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species list in 2017.

Neem wood is part of the mahogany family. It is harvested from a fast growing, drought resistant, heat tolerant tree that is common throughout India. These drums are made with the densest part of the Neem tree - the root wood. This root wood is dried for months before being cut and hollowed out into the drum shape.

This tabla / dayan measures 5.25 inches at the rim and will tune up nicely to C#, D, or D#. Precise construction of the syahi (gob) give these drums incredible bell-like clarity. Video samples are included below -- 

Includes:

While much of India is rapidly advancing, the Indian instrument manufacturing process remains very old school. From touch ups to tuning, much of what we do at Old Delhi Music is add a layer of quality control to an otherwise non-standardized production process.

We wrote THIS ARTICLE to ensure customers understand and might appreciate this vintage production style, the unique products we carry, and how we're working to ensure genuine quality, despite the odds. It's a quick read, and definitely worthwhile for anyone considering the purchase of a traditional Indian instrument.
