Djembe skin - Medium thickness cow skin for djembe drum

Cattle skins

These cattle skins for percussion instruments are collected from specialized slaughterhouses in Bouaké (Ivory Coast} known for the quality of their work. Freshly de-greased on site, are otherwise unmodified. Neither salted nor tanned, they are dried naturally and sustainably protected by an insecticide treatment. We check all skins systematically before shipping them: any skins with major defects (scars, holes, warts) will be put aside.

These medium thickness cow skin are intended for mounting a dundun or any other percussion instrument with an animal skin 1 mm to 2 mm thick.
