Welcome to the home page of the Sangeet Natak Akademi Recipient Qasim Khan Niyazi & Sons, the finest custom crafters of Tablas and other Indian percussive instruments. The Indian Tabla is a popular Indian percussion instrument which is used in Hindustani classical music and devotional music which is comprised of a pair of hand drums known as the Dayan ( treble drum made of wood) and the Bayan ( metal bass drum) ranging in different pitches and sizes. The playing technique of this instrument involves extensive usage of fingers and palms in varied configurations, thereby creating different sounds which can never be mimicked by any other instrument in the world.

Qasim Khan Niyazi & Sons have devoted their entire lives in crafting the finest Tablas for some of the greatest Tabla maestros of the 20th and 21st century. Their instruments are made from the highest quality of organic red and black woods grown from the Dalbergia Sissoo also known as Indian Rosewood or Sheesham) trees which are extremely durable and resistant to decay. The acquired blocks of wood are seasoned in the elements and properly cured for a number of years before taking birth as the Qasim Khan Niyazi & Sons Dayans and other Indian percussive instruments. The Bayans made by Qasim Khan Niyazi and Sons range from Brass, Nickel and Copper materials, with different weights from 3.5kgs to 5.0kgs, and all metals have different timbres and resonances.
