Tuning a Peg Drum
If the drum is new you should be able to gently tap the pegs in with a mallet.
Traditionally rope has been made from, animal skin, and other natural fibres.
All musical instruments should be kept in a dry room away from any direct heat – sun light / radiators.
Marks to shell
A little sandpaper and teak oil makes most drums sparkle.
Cracks to shell
Do not worry about a crack. A well glued crack, with a good wood glue should be as good as new.
