ok so I got a problem with my new dhol I bought just the barrel and varnished it and did up the bass roping, treble myself...now the bass sounds good but the treble sounds just like ass I can`t get any loud resonant sound out of it and i will admit the kinaar of the dhol is a bit off in some places but it is perfectly curved all round just some parts the curve is a bit more angled because the size is off by 2 millimeters so I decided to equal out the size. pls help me out with this

Sorry, a bit off topic: Is this the one you said you just bought in Jalandhar? I just read your post & am thinking about buying one from the same ustad lol. I'm ordering it so I don't know anything about the dhol... I've only seen that video where I can't really tell how good it is.

Yeah, my mom's going to get it for me but she doesn't know anything about dhols. I'm telling her to get a 13x13x25 kali taali with no varnish & nuts/bolts on tilli side. I just told her to check to make sure there are no cracks/repairs and that it sounds good to her. I saw a post in the youtube comments where one guy said he got his for 7500 rupees with a case and extra skins

maybe the rim isn't properly sanded?

that's the only thing I could come up with since your bass side sounds fine.
