Vijay Vhatkar tablas

VHATKAR TABLAS. Professional quality tablas sets by Vijay Vhatkar of Miraj, India.  The Vhatkar family is famous for making high level tablas used by many of the top musicians. Vijays brother Haridas Vhatkar is well known in Mumbai. All tabla sets are air shipped without exception to ensure quality and mold-free heads and shells. Dayans are pulled here in the shop prior to shipping if needed. All tabla dayans/bayans are made to professional standards.

Tor  Dietrichson, who is a close friend of Zakir Hussain and has recorded with him and is one of his earliest students with 35 years of tabla  playing experience says this: " I think all of these instruments are of the highest quality available and are very reasonably priced.  As a professional  tabla player who plays not only in Indian classical but also World  Fusion settings I like to have tabla drums of every pitch. And these  are the finest drums I have ever seen. They have my highest recommendation  absolutely!!"

We are now stocking tabla sets from Vijay Vhatkar, generally 1 or 2 sets are in stock at a time. Custom size orders are most welcome.

We don't carry student models or 'B' grade instruments. All sets are pulled several times to the designated tuning. Shipping worldwide from our shop, please contact us for a shipping quote.

We have known Vijay Vhatkar for several years now and been imported sets since first meeting him on custom basis only. We're now able to carry them regularly after some effort! I'm happy to say these are the nicest sounding tabla I've had the pleasure of carrying!

 

 

 

 

 

Unsolicited reviews of our Tablas....

 

Hi Lars!!

I just want to say thank you so much for a phenomenal tabla set! I couldn't have got a better set elsewhere!! I am so thrilled at the sight and sound of them! They look great and sound even better!

They came in perfect condition, which is a feat in and of itself coming all the way from India; as I know how damaged the packaging can be, many times including object of purchase. I loved the customer service you provided, and look to do business with you in the near future if I ever need to buy another instrument.

Another interesting fact that you may enjoy hearing is, by way of my Guru's instructions, I was informed to buy a tabla set to spread His Energy by way of a Grace Transmission through music. Being a drummer, I was told by Him to buy a "nice set of tablas from India," all the while knowing that playing tablas is like a "whole 'nother world"...... though I was up to the challenge.

Being naive, I figured I'd just get a good set of tablas, but at a store near me (not in India). They looked beautiful and built well, but sounded horrible. I thought I could just tune them up and they'd be fine. Didn't happen. Struggling to figure out who I should buy them from, I did some research and that led me to eventually wind up at your site and purchase through you. Worried about getting a shipment and product from india, I just trusted in the grace that all would be right, and you would help me out get "exactly what I needed." The universe directed me to follow my Guru's Guidance, and I ended up getting the perfect set! ... Beyond my imagination! So you didn't just help me get tablas, but you also helped me follow my Guru's Advice, and for that I am ever thankful!!
