Product of Asian handicraft

Small thick steer skin, buffalo skin, bull skin or cow skin for djembe drum percussion

We suggest using a thick cow skin or a bull skin for reskinning a conga or a drum with a quality animal skin with a thickness more than 2 mm.

Attention! Skilled practice and reskinning required! A lever and locking pliers required. Fragile hands should not attempt this!

It is equally important to choose a thick shell, with a high quality dry wood to mount this type of skin. Indeed, the risk of deformation is higher when using very thick goatskins or cowhides.

    Very even thickness and nice smooth surface. i have not fitted it to a djembe yet so cannot comment on the sound, so 4 stars, definitely recommend as a top quality skin.

  • Pan 06. 5/5 3 years ago

    Skins are very good. But thickness is not even(one side thicker and one side thinner)
    Horse hide is harder and thicker than donkey and mule..

    Good quality generally.

    Skin is good quality. Dark color peeled of from some places when wetting and mounting the skin.

    Despite the busy period at the end of the year, the store clerk was responsive and sent me the product that I was asking (a thick cow skin in a dark chocolate color).

    The skin quality is very high, in my opinion, because it is very consistent all across. There is no choice of colors etc. when one orders the skin, I wish I could choose the color of the skin by the drop down menu or have a different sought after colors or patterns etc. as a different item.

    Thank you for sending me the dark chocolate skin. The skin is very consistent and I find it to be of high quality.
