I have changed bongo, conga and djembe heads. I ordered two of these for my LP Aspire bongos. The first one tore during installation. I took this as due to error on my part, although this had never happened before. Then I installed the second one.I kept having trouble tuning it. I would tune it, come back to it and it would be out of tune again. During a a series of rehearsals and performances I noticed that this cycle was repeating more quickly. i thought maybe this was due to the extra humid and moist conditions. Summer, 2021, was a very rainy season and when there is no rain, there is still plenty of humidity. During a performance, it finally happened, the CRACK! heard around the world, well all over Middletown, NJ, anyway. I was tuning it. The pitch was not changing, and then...CRACK! The thing just popped - loudly!This was the first time I have ever experienced or even heard of this. I assume it happens more often than I am aware. I know stick drummers break heads all the time. Bongos and other hand drums rupturing during tuning is something I have never heard or experienced. Nothing traumatic, just a note.These skins are good for toy instruments, tambours, tambourines and other hand instruments that do not require high tension. Bongos, congas, djembes, dumbeks, and the like, especially those that are mechanically tuned require higher tension than these skins can withstand.
