Please contact us to confirm current stock. These prices valid for current stock only. Some prices may be based on previous shipments now out of stock. They are a close guide to future imports but prices vary slightly with each shipment depending on factors including current exchange rate, inflation in India and shipping costs. 

In recent years, our usual supplier has been sending orders quite slowly, so we have just started ordering from a second supplier, Imran, who is quicker but also more expensive. Quality is very high and consistently excellent. Prices of Imran supplies are indicated separately as applicable.

We are based in Macgregor, Brisbane, so purchases further afield should add postage from Brisbane. Eg one set of tabla generally packs into a box 80cm x 40cm x 40cm, weighing approx 12kg, though Australia Post will charge according to cubic weight (dimensions in cm). Please allow for our packing fee on top of postage, for us to carefully pack your tabla.

Postage and packing fees via Australia Post for full set of tabla are as follows:
 : Sydney $80
 : Melbourne $90
 : Canberra $100
 : Adelaide $110
 : Perth $130

Refurbished & Second-hand Tabla

From time to time people bring in old tabla which we refurbish with new puris and wadi resulting in quality close to that of a completely new tabla. From time-to-time they are good enough to sell on without repairs as second-hand. Subject to availability, which is very rare.
