Djembe skin - Thick steer skin, buffalo skin, bull skin or 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 thick steer, buffalo, bull or cow skins are intended for mounting a conga or any other percussion instrument with an animal skin thicker than 2 mm.
