Loose particles on tabla!? Apr 22, 2002 10:19 a.m.


Hi.

I have had my tabla for over a year now and I have noticed particles missing on the tabla (not bass drum). Will this affect the sound?

And also I am picking up a kind of ringing noise when I play 'Na. Not sure if its caused by the loose particles.

If anyone can help, please do.

A very, very small drop. Can't say I know from experience, I've never been able to find the loose particles (magnifying glass, bright light and all). You may be lucky!
