Thank you for an interesting series. I have a quick question: All of my tablas are from India, with the exception of one which is from pakistan. That one is quite different from the Indian ones in two ways: 1) it is much more lightweight and more hollow on the inside, whereas the indian ones are very heavy and 2) the outside is ornately carved with decorations (like flowers) whereas the indian ones only have lines carved around the shell.

I could not tell from the pictures you posted, but is this a characteristic of all tablas from pakistan, or just a few?
