This is a follow up to [how to make an atabaque from a to z
] and shows one way of replacing the skin
(re-heading) with minimum fuss.
My atabaque was built with that neat feature from the start: a single piece of rope
that can be easily undone to disconnect the tensioning ring and the ropework
, allowing for easy skin replacement.
This re-heading method will work with a number of atabaques, depending on how the ropework was done.
