Djembe and Dunun Tuning Tips

Like any instrument, your drum needs tuning to sound it’s best.
A few knots can have it really singing in terms of both richness of sound and pure projection.

πŸͺ˜ Avoid tuning in very hot weather.
πŸͺ˜ Add 2-3 knots at a time and test the results. Let the drum settle, play it and come back to it in a week or so.
πŸͺ˜ Using a stick or a tuning bar will save your hands from rope burn.
πŸͺ˜ Be careful not to tune your drum too much too soon! This is the most common cause of Breakage. The skin needs time to stretch.
πŸͺ˜ Fine tune by tapping down on the top outer ring with a rubber mallet, being careful not to hit the skin!
