Our hair on goat skins are all Australian farmed and feral goats.
Skins tend to be thicker in nature than African skins with more oils.
As a result they tend to have more stretch in them and take a little longer to play in
Suitable for: Djembe, Bougarabou and other drums
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)
