Great Value - Quick and Easy Replacement Head
RhythmZoneUK, 06.07.2017
The price and consistency of these heads make Meinl's doumbeks my preferred choice.

Easy to replace and a great sound.

Make sure you keep the tension evenly spread across all the screws (both when removing and replacing a head) - this will protect you from any warping of the shell and splitting of your new head. For example - if you number the screws 1 - 8 in a clockwise fashion, maybe start with 1, then, 5, 3 then 7, 2 then 6, 4 then 8, distributing the tension evenly and loosening/tightening only in slight increments. This protects the drum and the skin (both could break if the tension is out of balance), and leaves you with an evenly tensioned instrument.

It's also advisable to replace the upper part of the drum in the same position each time you replace a head - locking it in the same familiar position with the body of the drum. Maybe add a little oil to the screws to prevent any rusting - lengthening the life of your drum!

A final warning - don't wait long to remove a broken head. The uneven tension can warp of even break the body of your instrument.

For the fingers OK
Rishi S. Vlote, 20.04.2016
I use the Darbouka / Dumbeck on a mixed kit and play it preferred (yes, I know sacrilege!) With sticks (even my djembe)
This has the disadvantage that such a coat does not last longer than a year with me, because I almost have to tune at every gig.
Hence a star deduction. And I'm still looking for a more affordable alternative that sounds just as good ...
Update 16.07.2017
Now that I have to raise a new one, I value the coat down to 3 stars. Even if it is not intended for sticks. After we have taken the last coat exactly under the canvas again, we realize that the Aluringe are simply poorly processed and because no glue is used, the skins lose their tension relatively quickly and eventually it no longer holds in the ring ... Other just tear. Of course that's all relative and subjective, because I play them mostly with sticks ...
