Djembe Repair Made Easy is a step by step DVD designed to walk the novice through the process of re-skinning a rope tuned drum. This Djembe repair DVD allows you to navigate through 20 different chapters each packed with tips and tricks that make the process doable by all.
We begin by helping you select the right goat skin for your drum. We explain what to look for in a good goat skin and how to inspect it before you put the skin on your drum.
The process ends with tuning your drum. This can be the most demanding part of the process. We will show you how some simple devices around the house or from the local hardware store can take the work out of the effort.
