A quick guide to choosing the right skin:
- Thinner skins tend to be more responsive. Their sounds are higher and brighter. They are easier on the hands and more suited to new players
- Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps
- Thick skins are very rich and warm sounding. They take a little longer to play in, but once settled they have a very melodic quality
As these are natural products sizes vary slightly
Standard….. 85cm x 67cm (One standard/ large drum)
X Large…… 100cm x 78cm (Two standard drums)
We always take extra care in choosing skins that are free from faults and will go the distance on your drum.
Please understand however that as a natural product from the wild, we can never pick up 100% of the inherent defects as they can be invisible to the naked eye. Check out our skins warranty here, and scroll down to “Skins purchased from African Drumming.
