      Can anyone suggest the proper method of storing a large drum (marching band)? It dates to the late 18th/early 19th centuries. The sides are wooden with metal supports. Right now, the drumhead has been loosened and it’s sitting uncovered on its side.

      Hi Tamara,
      I’d suggest you get in touch with the conservators at the Musical Instrument Museum here in Phoenix. Daniel Cull, the Assistant Conservator, can be reached at
