Interesting sound.
I dont think I like it as a "Tabla" though.
The tones are too different. They dont meld together.
Im not sure why you would want a glass tabla though.
Seems like it would be easy to break.

Seems like it would go out of tune easily since there really isn't much to hold the gattas in place. Even in the video he posted, the caption says it's "a little out of tune". Why would he not even bother to tune it for the demo video? That makes me suspicious.

Why will anyone buy a dayan made from glass, when you can get a better one made of seasoned wood and leather straps.. That too at the same price.. delivered to your door steps. I dont think the glass dayan sustains the sound for a longer time. The Tonal quality differs alot.
