Tuning Of Mridangam & Mridangam Tools.
This is a quite big wooden peg, which will be used to decrease the tone of left side (bass sound) of Mridangam. If the tone is high, we need to reduce the pitch by keeping this wooden peg inside the rim & should hit the wooden peg outwards from a suitable stone. If we need to increase the pitch, then we need to hit the rim towards mridangam from a suitable stone. #MysoreVadiraj #onlineMridangamClass https://www.facebook.com/pg/onlinemridangamclass/posts/?ref=page_internal
