Although there's a lot of drums out there with splay, I doubt this is one of them. The bottom hoop appearing bigger than the top hoop is the giveaway.

Bill, you got your camera too close to the drum. Modern point & shoot cameras have a kind of "fisheye" lens affect when too close to the piece. Better to back off a bit then enlarge/crop in processing later.
