Turned-up Chat! Mar 04, 2002 12:03 p.m.

Hey everyone!

I'm having an unusual problem with the edge of my chat: it has turned upward all the way around the bayan. I've been told it is from humidity, not from humidity, too dry, it got wet, etc. It's a cold, dry winter here in Connecticut, so I don't think humidity is an issue. I don't keep it near a heater or anything. It's ripping apart my wrist, but I don't want to stop playing. What can I do??? Thanks.

Or just cut out the part that's bothering you (only on the baya)

As i am not very familiar with English - what actually is bostick. I have same problem here with my bayan. Can I use PVA glue? We have here very bad weather conditios for tablas in Estonia. Today it was 2 degrees below zero in the morning and about three hours later it was already 17 degrees above zero and right now it is raining.
