Tuning a drum isn't important, provided the skin is applied correctly! So, I too agree that there are no pros to tuning a drum, the important thing is to choose a good one meaning do your research before buying.

If you want to tune your instrument, you can try tuning it and see how it feels, I personally don't see any cons, soI don't know where you got that information, Loona.

Here's a short video showing the correct way to tune a drum:



If you're up for the challenge, try it :)
