Rehead your djembe with goat or cow skin:

For information about djembe woods

see “Djembe Buying Guide” from drumsticktony.com

A tune up and assessment is $15.00, with the understanding that the most vulnerable time for a djembe skin is when it is being tuned and stretched. If, during the assessment, the djembe/dunun skin splits and you want it repaired, the $15.00 will be applied to cost of the rehead.
