Hi everyone,

just wanted to ask you guys if 4.75" pudis are currently made or are they impossible to find, a rarity.

I have two tabla shells this size. One is regular quality, the other one is tourist quality, really cheap.

The second one came originally fitted with a horrible, untunable pudi and worse strap. The other one... I don

HI

It can be a possibility, as for your information I have had a 4.78" made for me with exact measurements a while back, however you have to try the makers in India to see if they can do this size as not many players go for this size. a 5.25" would be too large for a dayan shell this size. May want to try 5" and see how loose it is as it can effect sound quality if pudi is too big for the shell from my experience.

I don't play the 4.78" dayan much as feel it is too small for my hands and have difficulty with playing fluently on it, however it does the job for folk music but unfortunately this pudi has gone so the shell needs re-heading but not going to rush.


If you are going to use them purely for riyaaz then I would personally purchase a decent set with good tone and possibly a larger diameter shell.

Hope this helps.

I actually have small hands, but for riyaaz use 5.5" or bigger sizes form time to time, to get used to them :-)

Those smaller tablas are for my kid, who enjoys beating (and ruining) my good tablas. Those were cheap shells I had home and will just try to get them sounding so he can enjoy playing with them (instead of with my concert stuff LOL).

Thanks for the replies. I will contact David to get details.
