Description
BLEMISHED: Two-headed wooden deluxe naal drum that is shaped like a barrel with a tenor and bass head.
Drum heads are made from goatskin and are held in place and tuned by nuts and bolts.
Held horizontally, both heads are played.
Nuts can be tuned with a standard wrench, included.

In India, these extremely popular percussion instruments are commonly used in folk music and during marriage ceremonies.
Made in New Delhi by skilled craftsmen.

Please Note: These drums are handmade and each one is unique so the drums and drum heads will vary in size.

Heads: Bass: This bass consists of a goatskin head with a braid around the edge.
It usually has an internal load that adds depth to the sound.

The head you receive may have this gob in place.
However, for longevity, ease of installation and head sound, we recommend replacing the original gob with a layer of silicone caulk.

What is BLEMISHED?
Product codes ending in "-1(S)" or "-2(S)" are blemished. These products are new and unused with superficial blemishes that may include, blisters in the finish, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks.
"-1(S)" product has minor blemishes and "-2(S)" product has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs. The irregularity does not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument.

Product codes ending in "-3(S)" and "-4(S)" are also new and unused, but came to manufacturer needing repairs. If it's a "-3(S)," the product has been repaired, but if it's a "-4(S)," it will still require significant repairs when received by the customer.

Product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.

Please note:
For safety during shipping, the manufacturer don't tune the instruments before sending them to customers. Return policy A 15% handling charge is levied against all authorized returns except those due to our error. Unauthorized returns are subject to a 35% handling charge.
