A quick guide to choosing the right skin:
- Thinner skins tend to be more responsive. Sounds are higher and brighter and the skins are easier on the hands. Not recommended for stick drumming
- Medium skins are well balanced with warmer tones and bright slaps when cranked.
- Thicker skins are more durable and perfect for stick playing applications
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.
