A cow skin djembe is best for djembefolas looking for a warm sound close to the conga, a soft sound with powerful tonic notes and few harmonics.

This kind of djembe is trending right now, for many reasons:

- the durability of cow skin is better than that of goat skin which is used traditionally on a djembe,
- it is thicker and makes a dryer sound, a round tonic, a precise slap: its harmonics do not overwhelm in venues with a lot of reverb (gyms, certain other spaces),
- it allows the soloist to create a sound different from djembe drums mounted with goat skin which may be accompanying it.

Cow skin is less supple so your hands will get a serious workout!

These cow skin djembe drums were created by Malian craftsmen using traditional materials and skills.

« I am VERY VERY satisfied with the quality and sound of the djembe I bought from you guys ! So far it is the most beautiful piece of musical instrument I ever had in my hands. So my friends say and those who’s been playing djembe for some time love to steal my drum and play on its original mottled skin. I thank you million times for your, professional advice, help, asistance and patience. I will recommend your product and services wherever possible. THANKS ! »
