Not sure what the advantage is to this.it seems like more of a hassle doing it this way. Anyone have experiences with this type of pudi? Check 6:11 of the video below.

Whoa, never seen that before. I don't really get where it would be any more of a hassle to make one this way, but more like why. Wouldn't the sound be more muffled? Perhaps that's the point like a mute on a trumpet...

At first I thought that somebody has doctored the video just to mess up with the 'heads' of Tabla players (yes, pun fully intended). But then Zakir flashes it towards the audience very briefly at the start - so it is for real. It is very interesting, to say the least. I am curious as to what the pudi looks like now - on both sides and what other modifications were done to allow for this sort of mounting. Very innovative, for sure. Perhaps a game-changer. Like the strapless bra.

I saw a tabla with the syahi on the inside in 1998 in a shop in New Delhi. Can't remember where it was. The storekeeper showed it to me as a curiosity. It sounded quite good.
I haven't come across one like it since then.

What I remember is I was surprised the 4th finger had to be on the edge of the hidden syahi to get the proper Na sound as on a normal pudi. I realize now that makes sense from a physics point of view.

This could be good news for people like me with hyperhydrosis. I sweat excessively in my palms and syahi starts melting and sticking to my fingers in no time and spreads across the head. After some discussions here on the forum and speaking to David from VNO Design, I now play with finger gloves, fashioned out of regular surgical gloves. It's much better now. But syahi inside pudi could be a blessing for me, if it works.

See the syahi spread on the head.
