**Please note that filling the cracks may not ALWAYS fix the "dead" sound of the Toere but it almost ALWAYS improves the tone and pitch of the Toere.**

**All other services, such as rim repairs and re-fabricating of parts is priced based on service being needed as well as condition of the drum.**

**Please note that all prices may vary depending on the current condition of the drum and/or size.**

 **Djembes, and other non Pacific drums are subject to different charge.**
