Calf Discs – Hair off
AU $70.00 – AU $99.00
Hairless calf skin discs designed for solo djembe performance.
Calf are young (1-3month old) cows. Their hides are thinner than standard cow and yearling hides – perfect for djembes.
They are comparable to goat in terms of thickness.
Available in 3 disc sizes and 3 different thicknesses – Medium, medium/thin and thin.
About Disc Sizes: A 12″ disc is suitable for a 12″ drum; the actual diameter of the hide itself will be closer to 17″ to allow room for skinning.
Suitable for: Djembe, Shaman drums, Bongos. Please see our Australian Cow Discs for dunun.
A quick guide to choosing the right skin:
- Thinner skins tend to be more responsive. Their sounds are higher and brighter and the skins are easier on the hands
- Medium skins are well balanced with warmer tones and bright slaps
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.
