High Pitched (valanthalai) mridangam 6.25 inches head. The mridangam has two opposing heads, low bass (thoppi) and high pitched (valanthalai). Sliver-thin reeds are inserted between the two layers of the pitched head to create a distinct, buzzed sound. A small dough paste is traditionally applied on the outside center of the bass head to achieve a low bass tone.
