At the dhol company we believe it is important for every musician to keep their instruments maintained and in good condition. This benefit’s the musician when performing and the lifetime of the instrument increases.

With all our Dhol’s made we offer one free FDI for 12 months. We recommend that your dhol is checked every 3-6 months depending on how often it is used. The Dhol’s made at The DHOL Company are made with perfection and with attention to detail for peace of mind to the user for many years to come. As Dhol’s are transported everywhere and has skins which are beaten, it is important for these to be checked for any damage and wear and tear. I is also important for the actual wood/shell to be checked both inside and outside for any natural wood flaking or damage.

What is an FDI?
An FDI is a Full Dhol Inspection where our Dholtician’s take the dhol apart and inspect every single part of the dhol.


What does an FDI involve?
Our Dholtician’s take the dhol apart and inspect the inside of the shell and the outside of the shell. We also check the condition of the rope to make sure there are no kinks  or wear and tear. We check the skins to ensure they have no rips or hols from both sides and we will check the condition of all metal parts for any rusting or corrosion. After careful examining we will then assemble the dhol and retune the base and treble.


What if any part of my dhol is damaged?
If we find any part of the dhol damaged we will notify you instantly. If there are any small cracks, minor chips or flaking of the shell inside and outside we will repair this using natural fillers at no extra cost. For any major damages there will be an additional charge depending on the extent of the damage. Other parts such as, treble skin, base skin, rope, metal parts and strap are chargeable to replace.


How long will I be without my dhol?
A typical FDI can take just 48 hours from collection/drop off. If there is work to be carried out in addition then this may take a few days longer. As part of our bespoke service we will give you a courtesy dhol* to use till we get yours back you at no extra cost.


How much does an FDI cost?
A typical FDI will cost £40 provided the dhol is dropped off to us. This will cover the cost for the  abour and any materials if needed. An additional charge will be applied for collection/delivery. If you purchased on of The DHOL Company Dhol’s then you are entitled to 1 free FDI within 12 months from the date of purchase. For any major damages there will be an additional charge depending on the extent of the damage.
