Ceramic mother of pearl tabla (doumbek) with Nile river fish skin head, stretched it myself. Doesn't like the climate of Oregon very well, the humidity keeps softening the skin and I have to carry a hair dryer at all times.
Cost: $50 + S & H, cheapest you can buy but most awesome, deep earthy sound.
It will like San Diego much better. :-)
