The tabla is an asymmetrical pair of small, kettle-type drums used in the classical music of Northern India, Pakistan and Bangla Desh. It is also commonly used in popular music of these areas.

The pair consists of a tapered, wooden, cylindrical drum, called dayan (also daya, dae, dahina), played with the right hand, and a slightly larger, semi-spherical, metal one, called bayan (or baya, bae, daggi, dagga), played with the left hand.

Although traditionally the heads were tuned with camel-skin cords and pegs, modern versions are often turnbuckle tuned. The word tabla is derived from the word "tabl" which is the Arabic generic term for drum.

The wooden dayans are 5-5.5" playing diameter and the Bayans are 10-10.5" in diameter. These are 10 - 11 inches tall (measurements are approximate as these vary slightly due to hand manufacturing).
