Chicago Tabla Donation
Donate your tabla to Jamrok Tabla, and you can help support the promotion of tabla in the city of Chicago!
Have an old tabla set in disrepair? Want to get it off your hands and into a student’s hands?
Jamrok Tabla accepts donations of used tabla sets, so we can offer them to our students.
We will refurbish old tabla, pull straps, tune them up properly, and freshen up the tabla heads. Then, we can offer the set to one of our students looking for a tabla set.
We are looking for donations of table in and around the city of Chicago, but we may consider other areas if sender agrees to cover the postage and is willing to pack the tabla set so that they will not get damaged in route.
