How do I measure the crown?

There is a simple way to measure the crown of your conga, bongo or other hand drum.  If you’re ordering a flesh hoop, we will need some measurements from your drums.

By removing the heads and crowns of your drums and taking pictures like these, we will be able to determine the perfect size to make your custom flesh hoop or crown.

Follow the simple steps as shown in the pictures below for traditional crowns.

For rounded comfort crowns, follow this method:
