Mridanga Drum - Tilak (25")

Experience the Tilak Mridanga

Said to be an incarnation of Krishna’s brother Lord Balarama Himself, the Mridanga is a powerful instrument, which helps to carry devotees into blissful ecstasy while they chant the holy names of Krishna. In Kirtan, with thousands of people or just one or two, the Mridanga raises the consciousness and allows one and all to focus more fully on Krishna.

Tilak Mridangas are available in 2 sizes. This is the page for the normal/big size (25 inches long). Click here for the small size. The Small Tilak Mridanga's are great for children or for traveling!

Mridanga Drum - Tilak (25")


 

Nakula Prabhu plays the new Tilak Mrdanga. This is the new fiberglass mrdanga based on the design of the original ISKCON "Balaram Mridanga" but the Tilak Mrdanga is now a much improved and more reasonably priced mrdanga.

Introducing the new Tilak Mridanga! The Mridanga is made from hard wearing fiberglass and is built to last. On the body of each is the famous "Tilak" symbol that distinguishes the Vaishnava. This will help you to remember the spiritual and service aspect of playing the Mridanga.

The Highest Quality AND The Most Affordable

After years of research and development the new fiberglass Tilak Mridanga has been produced to replace the now mostly unavavilable Balarama Mridangas.

The Balarama Mridanga was first produced at New Dwarka (ISKCON Los Angeles) to solve a big problem with the clay Mridangas from India. The clay Mridangas are very fragile. A slight impact will cause them to break. To avoid this problem the fiberglass "Balarama Mridanga" was invented. It was a grand success and now the new and improved Tilak Mridanga is now available at almost half the price of where the Balarama Mridangas were priced.

By improving the production methods and producing the drums in a large quantity we have been able to both improve the quality of the Mridangas significantly and dramatically reduce the price at the same time.

Tilak Mridangas are available 3 colors:

  • Varaha Red
  • Chaitanya Golden Yellow
  • Gopal Krishna Blue

The Tilak Mridanga is quickly becoming the preferred instrument for Sankirtan and temple Kirtan alike. There are many advantages of these high quality fiberglass Mridangas:

  1. With a resonant bass head and a beautiful, crisp treble head, Tilak Mridangas have top-quality sound.
  2. They are easy to tune, and with the included tuning key you can tune up on the fly.
  3. Have you ever been out on Harinam Sankirtan and had the weather suddenly change from a beautiful sunny day to what might be best described as a "beautiful" shower? Tilak Mridangas won’t fall apart in the rain!
  4. The drum holds true and stays in tune regardless of the season.
  5. The vibrant, glossy finish adds beautiful color to your Harinam party.
  6. Tilak Mridangas are virtually indestructible, so transporting them is easy. (Some people have reported that an additional benefit of the Tilak Mridanga can be found when travelling by plane. You can easily remove the big/bass head of the drum and fill it with some of your clothes and other belongings, reducing the volume of your luggage and sometimes even saving you money on airfare!)

** NOTE ** You can hear in the video how much more the Tilak mrdanga sounds like a clay drum than previous fibreglass mrdangas.

Whats the bottom line?

A Tilak Mridanga will be a great friend and companion if…

  • You want an instrument that sounds great in any weather.
  • You travel a lot.
  • You enjoy Harinam and refuse to let little things like weather get in your way.
  • You want a rugged instrument that can stand up to the beating of a Ratha Yatra or big festival Kirtan.
    ...or...
  • You want an indestructible instrument to give to a young child so he can channel his energy toward Krishna (get them a small sized Tilak Mridanga).

Sri Mridanga Ki Jaya!

Read more I am astounded with the amazing customer service and generosity. The shipping in India can be pretty rough and so when my mridanga package arrived in Puri India (shipped from the Philippines) it had a small crack in it. I wrote a message of complaint and immediately I got a response asking if I'd like to be reimbursed with cash or a free new mridanga. I chose a new mridanga and this time it shipped with no problem. They even paid the $50 shipping cost! The Mataji who I dealt with was very helpful and kind. I have never seen such good customer service elsewhere. The mridanga is very light. Both sides of the mridanga are very loud and sounds almost just like a real clay mridanga. This is especially essential for places which have humid climate (humidity loosens the leather make clay mridangas go completely flat) or places which have a very dry climate (dryness tightens the leather making the bass side of the mridanga very high pitch). Here in India during the summer time the mridanga would sound too high and in the winter time it would be too low to the point of even going totally flat. But this Tilak Mridanga has solved all these common mridanga problems. Oh and during Ratha-yatra time in Puri they shoot you with these huge water guns because it is so hot. All the clay mridanga players had to cover their mridangas with cloth and guard it but me and my Tilak mridanga were getting drenched with water with no problem and I could continue playing loud. How awesome is that? A water-proof mridanga whose sound stays the same throughout all weather conditions! It is super easy to tune as well with the little wrench that is so intelligently placed on the shoulder strap. Read less

Read more I was very impressed with the speed of delivery of my new Tilak Mridanga - it arrived in under a week! The drum is nicely finished, and easy to adjust with an allen key in a little pocket on the strap. The lighter weight of the Tilak mridanga to the Balarama mridanga makes it easier to play (or practice) for long periods without feeling heavy on the shoulders. I think its lack of weight in the body causes it not to resonate as long as the Balarama drum - I'm not sure yet whether this can be rectified by experimenting with different materials on the heads (if anyone has improved the resonance please let us know how you did it). On the price side, the drum is very reasonably priced - well worth the money! Read less

I have now had the drum for just over a month, and really regret not getting one before. The sound is not as rich as a "proper" mridanga, but the weather-resistance and ruggedness of it makes it the obvious choice for me. I am very pleased with the drum, and especially the availability of excellent teaching videos available on YouTube, from various devotees.

It arrived at my doorstep quite quickly after my initial order was placed. The pictures on the website didn't quite do justice to the colour of the drum (I purchased the blue drum). However, this is a very minor concern and doesn't in any way effect the quality of the sound. Read less

Read more Thank you for the wonderful service that went into ordering and shipping the Tilak Mrdanga. which I purchased for a gift. I changed the color preference last minute, and arrangements for the switch took place. The Mrdanga arrived in good time, and was well protected with the packaging. The recipient is so pleased with the rich blue color, and deep resonant sound of the drum. Everyone who has seen the drum is impressed by the transcendental color and sound! Many blessings. I'll order again Read less

I got a blue one, and the color is like a metallic blue, with little sparkles in it. Many years ago I used to have a blue Balarama mridanga, and I can tell you that this drum both looks and sounds better than the old Balarama ones. And there's even a pocket on the strap for the tuning key. My only complaint is that it took 28 days to arrive after ordering it. But the drum is awesome! Thank you! Hare Krishna! Read less

When the Nityananda Mrdanga arrived I was out of town but my son said he really liked it. I was indeed quite keen to see it for myself. When I got home I was really impressed by the quality of the product; the blue color was superbly attractive and the sound vibration was amazing.

Question: Hare Krsna! Jaya Prabhupada! My mrdanga arrived today. The sound is flat and muffled, as though the drum has something inside. Is this so? Should I do something to prepare it for playing? Your servant, Deva-Sanga

Answer: There should not be anything inside of the drum. If the sound of the drum is a little flat it probab... see more There should not be anything inside of the drum. If the sound of the drum is a little flat it probably just needs to be tightened. This is done simply by lifting the rubber ring around the heads up to expose the screws on the metal tension ring. These screws can be tightened evenly around the head with an allen wrench, until the sound is as you like.  see less
