Dear Friends, I will be very greatful to you people if anybody provide me the contact telephone no. of tabla makers like Sushil Das (Parampara tablas), Bashiruddin (Benaras). or etc. I want only indian phone numbers. wishes Vivekanand
While everyone still refers to the business as Bashiruddin Tabla Maker, Bashiruddin himself has passed away, and it's his son that has taken over the business. I have some tablas from him that are quite nice.
Mumtaz (son of Shamshuddin) is also a good tabla maker in Benares, but I don't have his phone number.
"Allan Sahab & Sons" is perhaps the only Tabla makers in Lucknow. His nephew started making Table currently for Sunda Musicals but he may not be as good. Unfortunately, Allan Sahab does not have a telephone connection (at least till early 2003) but he could be reached at the following address
