I googled "clay baya" and this came up http://www.calmusical.com/product/clay-tabla/

It took longer to write this response.  I actually didn't know that they were still available.  Thanks for that.

Yeah i saw that. The tabla looks crappy though and i wont risk shipping from india. I will probably just get someone to copy a metal baya with clay and see how it sounds. There is a video of a homemade clay baya on youtube and it sounds (and looks) amazing. Sounds more tonal with clear harmonic notes. I wonder if you could tune the body with iron filings like with ghatam

I can understand your concern.  I've done a lot of shipping, though, and know that fragile items CAN be shipped safely.

What a great discussion to have!

I would expect clay to sound better myself, and the thought of adding ingredients to the clay to influence the tone is a great idea.  I wonder if it's been tried (on bayans, I know it's done on ghatams).
