Nice drum, bad ending
This drum gives very nice sound and looks good. And also is rather lightweight to carry around. The finish on the drum head edges comes off rather easily, with every small scratch. But as the design gives kind of textured feel, these scratches can be forgiven.
However after half year of occassional use one day its plastic head suddenly broke and now there is a crack. We always played this drum with feelings and we were using mostly fingertips. This particular time we were playing outside though and probably temperature change was the main reason. But we have played many drums outside and inside and never such temperature change have broken any drum skin (good luck).
So there is a crack now, the head is unreplaceable and I don' t know how I could fix it. I have contacted Thomann customer service, but they decline warranty and refuses to help. Not much I can do but leave here this unpleasant feedback, what I would rather not do so... I will never buy drum with unreplaceable head again!
