Greetings:
Thanks for your response to my buzzing tabla, I returned the drums to Sam Ash the sales person agreed that the patch was starting to crack and was causing a buzz.
I am now considering a new set from the intertnet, any recomendations would be appreciated. there is a AA set fom buckingham and a bolt nut set from ethnic instruments. I am just looking for a set that will provide a nice classic sound for recording with electronic synths
Thanks in advance

You can't go wrong with Buckinghams deluxe AA set. Thats the one I got, and its great.

Hi,

I am experiencing the buzzing too.... I looked for the particles but couldnt find any.

when i strike the bass, i hear a really bad buzzing sound.... I asked my teacher and he said it was fine.

when you press really hard and strike, you can barely hear it, but it is still annoying.

Waiting to hear from someone,

Thanks

I have experienced a buzz unexceptable and almost nearly unplayable, but it was caused by the weather. Perhaps yours are being subject to too much moisture? If that is not the case then it is being caused almost definatly by a loose particle. I have a small buzz when i strike hard that I cant locate the loose particle, so I just leave it. A while ago someone suggested rubbing some silicon filler into the gab, but it was never confirmed to work and not ruin the sound of the tabla. Your safest bet is to either replace the head if you have someone to do it for you, or live with it until you get new heads, or get new tablas.

Hey Gary,
Recording with synths? Have you ever considered going with electronic tablas? Two ways I can think of to do it. Buckingham instruments offers an electronic programmable tabla that is supposed to sound very realistic. Not too pricy either. Also, there are sampled tablas available which can be added to a synthisizer's sound bank. I hear them occasionally on some recordings. Might be easier in the long run to go that route as tablas like many Indian instruments are "tempermental". Just a thought.

Well here is the situation....

particles of by tabla were loose, but i threw them away.... now all that's left are tiny little craters in the syaahi....

about the moisture thing....

where should i keep my bass?
in the cool or in the warm?

thanks...

waiting for a reply...

I keep the bayan in the case with the dayan, just keep it near room temp or close and dont humidify where you keep them, its not so much tempature as it is just moisture content in your air.
