all Carved dhols are gonna be expensive

yeah I know that but need an alternative shop since ludhiana is too far from hoshiarpur and dhol factory doesn`t care about sales anymore they never respond and theirs always a cheaper source hiding somewhere

If your going to punjab yourself, go to any shop and show them your designs and look around until you findsomeone can make them, with custom dhols they spend longer on finishing touches and tuning, and take about 7 day to make. Thats what my friend did with his-he got his from some shop on new railway road, jalandher-not calcutta music house
