Goat – Full Hides – Hair off
AU $56.00 – AU $300.00
Versatile and easy to mount, hair off goat hides in your choice of size and thickness.
The closest thing we have found to an African Skin in terms of sound – Nice crisp top end!
Suitable for: djembe, frame drums, doumbek, small drums.
Come in rectangular shape with edges trimmed.
These skins have not been irradiated or bleached!
Our hair off skins are “washed” with a natural lime solution (as found in the garden) which removes 100% of the hair. Perfect for people wanting a hassle free and fast solution to re-skinning. They are slightly pre-stretched and require less cranking to get them to playing pitch.
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….. 70cm x 60cm (One X large 15″ or one medium and one small drum)
X Large…… 86cm x 60cm (Two medium 12″ drums)
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.
