Hello all,

I have a student who is going to be in Bomaby next week. He needs to get a good tabla to bring back to the states with him and use while he is there for a performance. Any suggestions on what are good options? All my tablas are mail ordered from Calcutta or purchased in Lahore so I dont have experience or connections in Bombay beyond the ones that I've purchased in stores in the USA.

Is there a store that he could go to to get a nice ready made set?
Is there a maker we could pre order from so he could pick up the tabla when is there?

Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
