Maintenance: Drums

Tuning a Peg Drum

If the drum is new you should be able to gently tap the pegs in with a mallet.

Djembe Rope

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.
