Keeping your drum protected from an unexpected event is good practice. You never know, the head could get bumped when passing through a doorway, or maybe a friend might use it as a coffee table! The cost of a cover is usually much less than doing repair work to a musical instrument. We recommend buying a good bag for your drum, you won’t regret it.
We offer a wide range of bags to fit all budgets. The less expensive African cloth bags work well for most people, the sturdier bags from Mali provide more rugged use, and the
USA made ones have more features for comfort and protection.
One of the best reasons for buying protective covering for a drum is to help keep it sounding good. A natural skin drum head is susceptible to absorbing air moisture, this softens and make it stretch and the pitch goes down. To help keep your drum sounding consistently the same cover the head when exposed to varying humidity. A full bag is the best way but a simple drum hat works great too. If your budget allows get both, that’s drum♥. Take care of your drum and it will take care of you!
