While buying Naal ensure that you are getting all the accessories that are required for fitting and tuning. Buy Naal that has metal hook sets, quality of wood used in crafting the instrument is of high quality like sheesham, also examine the quality as well as measurement of drum head skin Drum heads are available between 20 and 22 inches length and come with nylon bags in some cases.
A professional Naal will always be crafted in heavy and well-seasoned Sheesham Wood and will have Nuts & Bolts fitted for tuning keys.
Be well informed and make the right decision. Whether you buy it online or go to a musical instrument shop, the first thing to remember is you know what you want and why. Unless you are clear in your mind about the quality you are looking for and sound output you are expecting it will be difficult to make the decision.
Some of our clients bought their naal in India and carried it as luggage worrying through the travel, only to find that it was flawed and there was no way they could go back to get the instrument repaired. And shipping it and getting it back was an additional cost.
We are not discouraging you from getting your Naals or any other musical instrument from India because the instruments that we sell are also crafted in India. We are only emphasizing that know what you want and know what you are paying for.
