Default Removing worn BD patches

I have an Aquarian superthin patch on my SKI that has a small hole worn through it so that it's gotten down to the bare head itself, which is what i thought the patch was designed to prevent. So that being said, is there a way I can get the patch off the head so that I can put a new one on? Can it just peel off or do i need some sort of instrument to pry it off the head?

I was able to peel mine off. It was a double and since I don't play double bass much at all I decided to remove it and cut it down to a small single. Don't know how long yours has been on but it may take some lighter fluid to remove it completely. As far as it doing its job, it did. At least the hole in the patch is not in the drum head. They don't last for ever.

If you dont feel comfortable pourning lighter fluid on your bass drum, for whatever reason, nail polish remover should do the job pretty well. Then use goo-b-gone or some other similar product to get the glue off the head before you put another one on.
