About the Shell
Melina is a golden hardwood with a good balance of weight and sound. Generally carved in typical Guinean style and having a sound profile with the brightness of lighter woods like Iroko, and the punch of denser lenke.
About the Hide
Thinner skins are responsive, sound higher and brighter, and are easier on the hands for new players. They also have higher volume so are well-suited to solo drums. Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps. They are versatile and suit just about any drum. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
