Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have a trick in removing excessive hand powder (talc) from the drum skin? I have very sweaty hands and have put too much on and it's muting the drum.

Thanks!

You can scrape the powder using a credit card..just do it slowly (in circular pattern) without putting too much pressure and remove little bit at a time. Doing it once a week should keep the syahi powder free..

Try using a Superfine grain sand paper, and rub off the talc gently over the syahi as well as the skin.
