Curious if anyone has tried modifying a dayan to replicate the timbre/sound of a Mridangam?

Thanks!

1) I may have missed it but I failed to find any relevance of the previous link to the posted topic.
2) One way is to have a mridangam head mounted on a tabla. I had such a dayan many years ago.
3) a temporary approach is to take a portion of a toothpick, cut it down to about 2 cm-3 cm and place it at a particular point between the chat and th maidan. It should just be touching the syahi. If it is placed correctly it will give the dayan a mridangam like quality.

I can't find the time stamp, but he mentions the extra dayan sounding like a Mridangam.

What is the standard size of a Mridangam head?

Thanks!

We are normally use big diameter Tabla called as "DHALYA" for producing sound like Mrudinga.
