Tabla Repairs, Tabla Purchasing

Buy new tabla, repair old ones, professional tabla skins

I have great connections with the best tabla makers and have a very broad knowledge in the production of quality tabla. 

Need a tabla repairing, re-skinning or stretching? No problem, those services are also available. I use the highest quality Banaras Skins. Every tabla that we sell or make is professional level. Please see my facebook page or follow me on instagram for more picture and videos.

Being a tabla player here in Leicester, I understand what the needs are and what tonal quality is needed for the tabla. All tabla’s are re-skinned and balanced to produce the best sound.

Get in touch with any queries that you may have regarding purchasing or repairing tablas.

Somnath Kakade Tabla

If you are looking for a softer and more melodious sound then these are used by many Ustads and masters around the world. They offer great resonance and clarity of sound. Skins from Pune are slightly thicker and very durable.

Manoj Haridas Vhatkar 

Definitely the most reputable and well known name in quality manufacturing of tabla. Manoj Vhatkar produces tabla like you will not have ever played before. Perfect tone in every way and built to last. Choice of true players. 

Bharat Kakade Tabla

Bharat is also based in Pune and produces a rich tonal quality. The skins are thick, syahi work is oustanding and they produce a majestic quality sound. Used by many Ustads and their students.

Delhi Tabla 

These tabla have a crisp and clean tone. Perfect for all playing abilities. Versatile in pitch and durable, slightly cheaper than the premium brands but not inferior in tone. 

Pro Kolkata / Calcutta Skins

When it comes to tonal quality and sound experience, these skins are amongst the highest grade and durability. There are myths about certain skins from Kolkata not lasting long but we don’t stock that quality and only offer the best items. 

Tabla Skins

I also sell a range of tabla skins from all the above makers. If you need custom ones made, then please get in touch.

Synthetic Tabla Straps 

I have come up with a great formula of making some amazing straps for your tabla which are saving animals from being slaughtered for making straps! These are a blend of some really tough poly fibres which are ideal to hold tension, not fray when using them and also dont slip on the base or tuning pegs.
