Hi Yaniv,

David Courtney's third book talks in great detail about different woods and their characteristics with regards to sound production and tabla. In general, shisham (Indian rosewood) is the commonly accepted ideal wood for tabla.

Personally, I've always been curious about how an ebony tabla might sound.

Regards,
Shawn
