Thread in the Chanti of Tabla Dec 02, 2003 05:35 p.m.

Hi all,

I would like to know what the exact purpose of the tread in the Tabla chanti is. My Tabla sound is dampened.
In my Tabla, the thread seems to have gone too inside the chanti (towards the gajra). Is that the reason for the reduction in sound quality ?

Also, how do I put the thread where it belongs ?

Thanks for your help.

The thread increases the resonance. IF it has gone to far in, then it will cause the sound to dampen.

I use a credit card to insert the string, keeping in mind not to push it in all the way. You want it at the halfway point.
