Wide tuning range
Syahi is made of boiled rice and other materials like iron powder. The adhesion of the Syahi to the skin is through the starch which acts like a glue. This necessitates the frequent replacement of the Syahi
The Syahi is chemically bonded to the drum head membrane so that it does not fall off or wither away with time
This eliminates the need for Syahi replacement. The head is also impervious to hand sweat.
Heads are fixed to the shell permanently. So re-heading the shell has to be done only by a Tabla craftsman.
Heads are detachable and assembling the drum heads is very simple
If the heads get worn out they can be easily replaced by the users themselves
In case of the nut bolt Tabla, the hooks project out of the shell; they may hurt the fingers while playing
The nuts and bolts are placed in a way that they are completely non obstructive. Furthermore, the tuning hardware, except the tuning nut that needs access, is completely covered and protected.
Aesthetic appearance with complete protection for hands while playing
Heads cannot be cleaned easily
Heads can be cleaned with a moist cloth
Heads can be cleaned with a moist cloth, which is unthinkable in the case of the animal skin heads
