Cow – African – Full Hide


SKU: cow-african-full Category:

Premium African cow hide in your choice of size and thickness.

We import our African Cow hides from Ghana. African hides tend to be thinner than Australian hides due to differences in breed, climate and diet.

Generally speaking, cow skins are thicker than goat and have a warmer quality to them. As this type of skin is thicker, it is recommended for more experienced drummers – it can be hard on the hands for new players

Suitable for: Djembe and Bougarabou. Please see our Australian Hides for dunun

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
