A co-worker gave me this drum several years ago and I've decided to spruce it up a bit. Here's the dumb question, the head can be changed right? It has the original head on and I can't get it out of the wooden hoop. I could but didn't want to break everything in the process. Any tips?

Oops, should have put this in Vintage. Mods can you move it please?

You should be able to gently pop the head off with your thumbs. A new head will probably be a bit tight to mount. Put the new head on the shell. Then, work the rim over the head. Be gentle.

Thank you. I've never changed one of these, always a modern drum. They are stuck on but are coming off slowly. Should I use reg heads or more classic fit/vintage style heads? Shell diameter is 13 7/8 in.

Won’t a standard 14” head fit? Try one of the new Remo oversized heads or Aquarian vintage heads.

Yeah I had a regular reso head that fit with no problems. Ordered a regular batter head. Thanks for the help.
