How do I take care of my drum?The drums are made with natural material. This means that they are sensitive to the elements, especially heat and humidity. In short; heat makes the skin tighten and humidity makes the skin loose. This isnt necessarily a bad this, as you might like the voice of you drum when its tighter, or looser? However, not being careful with this can ruin your drum. A rule of thumbs is to never let your drum be exposed to hear without supervision. If its exposed to heat for too long, the skin can tighten itself to the point where it cracks. This can happen if: * The drum is left in the car on a hot summer day * The drum hangs on a wall under a heat pump or over an oven/fireplace * The drum is left in the sun * The drum is exposed to very dry air over a period of days/weeks.
