I have a Meinl darbuka which has eight tuning bolts, a mother of pearl GEF darbuka with six, and a mini darbuka with four (i don't know if its Alexandria or GEF - it was advertised as the latter but i strongly suspect it is actually the former).

I don't know the mechanics that would make one better than the other, but the Meinl can be a bit of an ordeal to tune having so many bolts. I'd say from my observations, six tuning bolts seems to be the happy medium - not too few to get good tension, and not too many to make it a chore.
