David, How are you guys doing ? the website looks good but my tablasite links go to the tabla.com website now. Did they do that or did you sale your domain name?
Peter Cutchey received a number of tabla with broken puddi's so I have been putting heads on and getting better at it The only thing I used to do was put a little water around the inner lip but I haven't been doing that now and I don't remember why I had to do that , the drums are coming out nicely.
So Peter should have some nice sets he will be selling in the 250 range that would normally go for more in case any are interested http://www.buckinghammusic.com
