Mridanga Drum - Small - Tilak (20")
Introducing the Small version of the Tilak Mridanga! Like the big version, the Mridanga is made from hard wearing fiberglass and is built to last. On the body of each is the famous "Tilak" symbol that distinguishes the Vaishnava. This will help you or your child to remember the spiritual aspect of playing the Mridanga. Here's a demonstration of what the Tilak Drums can sound like (Big size drum is featured in the video):
Nakula Prabhu plays the new Tilak Mrdanga. This is the new fiberglass mrdanga based on the design of the original ISKCON "Balaram Mridanga" but the Tilak Mrdanga is now a much improved and more reasonably priced mrdanga.
Great First Drum for Children
Many Vaishnava children love to bang on the instruments in temple rooms and around the house. The Small Tilak Mridanga is a great first drum for kids because it is virtually indestructible and it is a good size for them to learn on.
Great Mridanga for Travel
The small Tilak Mridangas are still powerful enough to be a good drum for adults, too, especially for those who travel. The small mridanga is actually small enough to be carry-on luggage: one traveling mridanga-player even removed the big head of the drum, stuffed clothes in it, put it in his duffel bag, and flew with it carry-on.
