When you receive a new tabla, it is often off the "factory-set pitch" - often lower particularly when it had to travel a distance. Do you remove all the pegs and retighten the straps? Right away or wait a few days?

Depends....

If after adding gattas if it is not reaching the desired pitch even after putting 3 straps over, retighten straps else use it and wait for the said condition to arrive.

You should always avoid unnecessary tightening of the straps.
