Mukta Das was born into a lineage of 11 generations of exceptional tabla makers. We have had the good fortune to spend time with him at that shop in Kolkata. It's a privilege to know him and supply his drums here in the U.S.
This beautiful hand carved naal meets the quality standards you'd expect Mukta Das and greatly exceeds the quality of others we have seen.
Includes: - Gig bag, hammer, dowels, and cushions - FREE SHIPPING within continental U.S. from our Urbana, IL location - One month FREE access at Bhakti Breakfast Club -- classes on tabla, harmonium, and more!
Built from a single block of seasoned wood and beautifully carved. Bolt tuned with premium goat skin heads. The quality you expect from Mukta Das.
SHIPPING: Your instrument will arrive safely, and if it doesn't, we'll take care of it. Our packing methods have ensured that over 99% of the instruments we ship arrive undamaged. Should things not go perfectly, we will get you a replacement, refund, part or whatever is necessary. No problem.

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.
