Tuning the Mrdanga

Post by uddhavadasa » Tue Aug 30, 2011 4:05 pm


I have found a website that says that on the right head, the center and outer part of the Mrdangam (South Indian) should give the same pitch. Is this true?

Also, does anyone know if there is other option besides the black patch on the right head? Has it always been black?

With Love,
Uddhava dāsa
