Thank you Kalyan! I was in the AACM Store today for a bit, but missed you. I will come by again sometime to show you a prototype of a new Tabla mounting system I think you will like!

@Bhilaj51 About the hook question, I've never seen a serious Tabla player use a drum with just the hooks holding the head. Besides them potentially hurting your hand should you strike one, they do not provide the stability or adjustability of the straps. It's not to say you can't play a Tabla with the hooks alone, but the needed hour to lace some strap on when you consider your drum will last for several years is well worth it.

Thank you again for your inquiries,
