Avoiding Water and Humidity

Though the MOISAI drum is coated with a high-quality powder paint layer, it is still crucial to prevent direct contact with water or high humidity.

Proper Playing Techniques

To maintain the protective layer and prevent damage to your MOISAI drum, always use the correct playing techniques. Remember:

  • Play the drum using your hands or wool mallets.
  • Avoid using wooden mallets or sharp objects, as they can damage the protective layer.
  • If using mallets, ensure they have a soft, non-abrasive surface.

Proper storage and maintenance are essential for preserving the life and sound quality of your MOISAI drum. Here are some suggestions for storing and maintaining your instrument:

  • When not in use, store the drum in a dry, well-ventilated place.
  • Keep the drum away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and damp environments.
