12” Moose or Buffalo leather handbag. The absolutely best way to protect a drum from the elements of humidity changes is with a leather drum bag. 365 days a year a drum changes with humidity changes. Literally the skin grows with high humidity when humid and shrinks when dry. This effects the tone of a drum. When too humid the tone does down and in extremes will go flat (a drum will return to its ‘normal’ as humidity moderates). Too dry and a drum will get very high in tone and in extremes a drum can crack. But a leather bag protects a drum from dramatic changes in humidity.
