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.

Für die Finger OK
Rishi S. Vlote, 20.04.2016
Ich setze die Darbouka/Dumbeck an einem gemischten Kit ein und spiele sie bevorzugt (Ja, ich weiß, Sakrileg!) mit Sticks (sogar meine Djembe)
Das hat den Nachteil, das so ein Fell bei mir nicht länger als ein Jahr hält, weil ich fast bei jedem Gig nachstimmen muss.
Daher ein Stern Abzug. Und ich suche immer noch nach einer halbareren Alternative die genausogut klingt...
Update 16.07.2017
nachdem ich jetzt schon wieder ein neues aufziehen muss, werte ich das Fell auf 3 Sterne herab. Auch wenn es für Sticks nicht gedacht ist. Nachdem ich wir das letzte Fell nochmal genau unter die Lue genommen habe, wir klar, daß die Aluringe einfach schlecht verarbeitet sind und da keinerlei Kleber verwendet wird, verlieren die Felle relativ schnell ihre Spannung und irgendwann hält es nicht mehr im Ring... Andere reissen einfach. Das ist natürlich alles relativ und subjektiv, denn ich spiele sie nun mal vorwiegend mit Sticks...

ne convient pas à mes darboukas Egypt
Dominique426, 20.07.2013
Sur la photo, on voit qu'il y a un épaulement, nécessaire au montage sur un darbouka egypt, mais une fois à la maison, c'est une peau simple, standard, comme il y en a partout à 2€.

Pourtant, à la description du produit, cela devrait être évident, il y a même des plis sur la peaux, etc, etc... mais bon.... je suis déçu.
