We advise using a castrated billygoat skin to percussionists who are looking for a very warm sound, with almost no harmonics.
It is equally important to choose a thick shell, with a high quality dry wood to mount this type of replacement skin for djembe or drum head. Indeed, the risk of deformation is higher when using very very thick goat skins or cowhides.
