Tuning a Dhol

in Bhangra Dhol, Tuning

A dhol can be tuned just like tuning a dholak. It is not a very complicated task. It just requires that “You should like the sound”. Tuning a bass side requires that it should lie between a tone and a thud. If the tone is too high, then it can generate a treble sound and if thud is too high, the sound could not be heard.

Pitch can be varied by tightening or loosening the ropes. Tightening helps in enhancing the tone and loosening helps in increasing the thud.
