Hi,

My tabla hammer does no scrapping at all when removing talcum powder and I have to use a credit card.

I was just wondering could any tabla players recommend me a tabla hammer that does its job properly

Thanks!

That is not what a tabla hammer is for [eek] You risk damaging the skin/shayi. The flattened handle end is only really used for lifting the straps when tightening.
If there is excess powder on the shayi, you can use a dry sponge or cloth which is only very slightly coarse, other people have recommended very very fine sandpaper.
I'm sure others more knowledgeable will chip in, but I've never heard of using the tabla hammer to scrape the skin
