Conditions such as humidity will slacken the calfskin heads. It is necessary to tighten the calfskin heads to get a crisper sound. As this is the sacrifice you make to get a historically sounding drum! British Indian Army use to keep them under direct sunlight or near the fireplace before tightening up the head, to get a much crisper sound.
