I have used it for my kathak class (just once) and I found it comfortable and it stays well. The sound is excellent and the rope is of good quality. Only time will tell if it can last long
I am satisfied with this product.
The thread and the plastic cover appears to be dirty. You guys need to store it in a better place. The bells sounds really good and are big.
Ok I admit the sound quality is good. Price is also good. But you guys need to make sure the threads doesn't look dirty.
