Painstaking stresses to find the appropriate wood, careful and diligent efforts to process the skins, laborious Shyahi application and industrious craftsmanship have been applied at JAS factory to produce tabla pairs for players of every level around the world. JAS produces world-class Tabla pairs for renowned musicians and affordable tabla pairs for hobby players and students.
We work hard on the process of making tabla heads as well as gathering perfect materials for each particular model of Tabla. We use variety of woods Sheesham, Sirish and black rose to make shells for Dayan. All Dayan shells go through the process of natural seasoning from three to five years. We have over 5000 Dayan shells always in stock in our factory. Bayan shells are made using aluminium, steel, brass and copper metals. Due to non availability of a good quality processed skin in the market, we set-up a unit in our factory to produce best quality skins to make the best tabla pairs. The most crucial row material SHYAH is refined by our experts. Our team of experienced craftsmen use all these materials to produce best tabla of its class. Our Tabla Dayans are precisely made in scale from lower Octave Pancham G# to the higher Octave Pancham G#, produce long sustained sound and stay in tune. Final tuning setup and jewari is carried out in our workshop in London before the finished instrument is supplied to the customer.
JAS makes dholak drums for every level e.g. for infants an intro drum, for ladies a lightweight drum to play in ladies sangeet, for musicians playing with bands and for legendry players recording Bollywood music or concerts.
Rather than believing myths about construction of string instruments or following traditional techniques without understanding them in depth or using ancestral names as goodwill, we at JAS have a team of technicians researching Indian String Instruments and the best manufacturing techniques for them. This helps us to improve the quality of our musical instruments and stay ahead of our competitors.
The JAS brand Sitars are lovingly made from scratch in our own factory in Delhi. Our highly skilled team of Lutheirs, high quality materials and consolidated manufacturing process allows us to produce good quality Sitars at affordable prices. We always have in stock a large quantity of high quality Toon Wood ( Cedrela or Indian Red Cedar ) stored for seasoning. Our craftsmen choose the wood and the pumpkins suitable for making Sitars from our seasoned stock with great care. For the JAS brand Sitars we use German or American steel, English bronze and brass strings.
