Tabla! is the fun and easy way to play the Tabla and Pakhawaj. Perfect for both beginners and pros alike, Tabla! Free utilizes the latest technology and decades of real drum experience to create the ideal tabla app for the iPhone or iPad.

All of the features of the app combine to make you feel as if you are sitting down and playing real Tabla or Pakhawaj. The drums respond to your touch, as the sound varies according to how hard you hit them.

Playing realistic rolls is as easy as swirling your finger around, simply adjusting the roll speed by how fast or slow you swirl your finger. Other features include pitch, sensitivity, reverb, delay adjustments, multi-track recording, ability to share and export your recordings (optional in-app purchase), and so much more.

There is also 7 different professionally recorded high fidelity drum layouts, including Tabla, Tabla Jam, Pakhawaj, and Tambourine, with more to come. Tabla! also features 25 unique Percussion Beats and 10 Music Beats to play to, as well as 24 different metronome sounds.

Customer Reviews

Tried it, like it!


Just downloaded, played around and concluded that this is a great app. Much like the other drums apps by this is really good. Great sounds, loads of controls and the ads are not in the way (like some apps). Its free, so it is definitely worth a try.
