Greetings, musicians!

My boyfriend does not have a nice rug on which to play tabla, so I would like to get him one for Christmas. Does anyone know where to find them, online or in Los Angeles? I don't know what kind of rug I'm looking for here...just a prayer rug or any small rug? Google doesn't seem to know of any rugs made specially for tabla players.

Thank you!

That's a nice thought!

I do not believe there is a special rug for tabla players..anything comfortable to sit on will do. Hope it helps!

Be careful while buying rug for tabla playing.
Avoid followings

Synthetic rugs (nylong or similar) - Tabla will slip on it while playing
Too thick rugs - Tabla will not be stable while playing.

I would suggest to go for moderate thickness (about half an inch) cotton or wool rug.


Hope that help

If you can afford it get a Persian rug. Usually these will not slip and are very comfortable. Not to mention you feel like you are playing Tabla in a royal Mughal court...

Best of luck
