Hi. 

I'm only currently able to get my tabla up to around a B, and would love to get that overtone-rich c# sound. The corks are single-bound, but the other straps are around. Can I get them double-bound in a shop for that higher pitch tuning?

It would depend on the "pudi" AKA skin. A tabla shop would be able to advise if further tightening is possible. One suggestion is to feel the pudi tautness which should be a good indicator if further tightening is possible.

Please note during manufacturing time different pudi's are made for a particular scale which mandates the amount of syahi applied on the pudi.
