I had the privilege of using these over the last 2 years while engineering at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London for the student shows. They are AMAZING. I would get one if I can find one in the price range. Will keep an eye on the linked! Thanks!

I am quite sure it would have been only the best for Ravi Shankar Bill thanks for the suggestion! Will try to find one going within my budget (doubt I will though). Although, on a separate note, Ravi Shankar, even though sort of gave way to Tabla Solos, does tend to like his tabla's sounding rather different. I prefer a Zakir Hussain or a Swapan Chaudhuri sound xD .
Again, thanks. Will go look at all those suggestions now =D
