What do you measure when you have to buy a new drum head?


ANSWER

Hi, Wesley--

Measure from the outside edge of the shell to the opposite outside edge (diameter). Do not include the metal ring. Heads are measured in inches, so if you come up with something in between, you probably need to measure again.
