Mini Tablas - Old LP Post

This is a very old post (1999), but I found it and it cracked up. I love
minature things. I have a mini sitar that's about 14 inches long. I
found this post below, and I'm actually going to buy these mini tablas.

Dan, if you are still out there. Thanks!

If you would like to order the Mini Tabla at a reduced rate, send me 
some mail, I'm the NorthAmerican distributor for them.  They work 
wonderfuly for looping, they are smaller in size, but due to the 
shell material they are actually louder than regular tablas.  Juerg 
and I are also developing a drumhead that you can hit with a stick, 
so you could mount it off a drumset and have no troubles at all.  
Feel free to send any questions my way.

IMHO, Tabla are one of the ultimate drums.  At one point in my life I 
debating selling all my other instruments (over 150) and devoting 
myself to
the tabla.  Fortunately, this temporary mania passed.

Tabla are extremely versatile but I find it hard to get a good sound 
they're relatively quiet.  I usually use a pair of mics.  Good in the
studio, trouble on stage.  I haven't tried a pick-up yet.  After this
thread, I'm definitely going to!

Check-out the "mini-tablas" on http://www.tabla.com/tablahpg.html .  
might work better for looping.
