About Disc Sizes
A 12″ disc is suitable for a 12″ drum; the actual diameter of the hide itself will closer to 17″ to allow room for skinning.
A full hide will allow for a minimum  of two large 14″ drums up the spine, and small drums on the flanks

A quick guide to choosing the right skin:

  • Thinner skins tend to be more responsive. Their sounds are higher and brighter and easier on the hands
  • Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps
  • Thick skins are very rich and warm sounding. They take longer to play in, but once settled they have a very melodic quality

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.


We recommend using good quality headphones for all our sound grabs – they’re recorded at high fidelity for your listening pleasure!
