I was sent some Cow skin by Meinl, Do you think Cow skin will work? My drum looks just like yours.
@kickit301 on a goat perhaps…? 😉
Excellent video! Thank you!
First: Thank you so much for having these instructions freely available online. I would have never had the guts to try to install my own head without them. and i certainly wasn’t going to pay the outrageous price most places were going to charge to install the head (over 100$!)
I have followed your instructions for installing my very first djembe head. they have been excellent. everything has worked out great – with one exception.
sir i’m from vietnamese, i don’t know how to make a skin to become white,clean ,pls show me how to do it , thank u very much.
Thank you!! This was illuminating. My djembe got damaged in a fire, but just the skin and rope part, not base. Will redo as per your instructions.
Hey, I have a quetsion. I am not an expert of replacing a Djembe’s skin so I payed someone who knows to do it. My problem is that whenever I play, I hear buzzings. I’ve searched some forums about it, and they all suggested that I remove the skin and take care of it.
But is there a way to treat it without having to remove the skin?
Where does one find goat skin?
Thanks a ton! I will be doing this soon to a drum of mine. I would like to message ya with some questions about my specific drum.
My GF has a JP Aspire Djembe, the goatskin on one side slipped off and needs to be reattached. there is no room to do anything and I wanted to know should I just buy her another drum head?
Man, you deserve MORE SUBSCRIBERS. Awesome stuff! Keep it up. Ill be watching!
Very helpful, detailed tutorial. I changed my first djembe head following this series.
Only thing I would suggest is to put a link to the whole series (playlist) in the description of each episode. I came to this episode from a google search, and it took a while to discover and locate the rest of the series. I’m probably not the only one.
Thank you for the kind words musicisbrilliant.
My only beef is that you never mentioned to leave a 1-2 inch gap between ring and head – i left it almost flat after hearing that tightening will bring it down a bit. and now i have no space between head and ring! I’m debating buying another skin and starting over.
also – I advice against using your hands to tighten – it gives blisters!
All in all – these video’s are EXCELLENT! I’ll post links to these video’s/website on my FB page if you want.
Can a skin be used on a LP Djembe that uses metal ring and tension rods?
thanks…this video really helped !….
