Skin Size Selection (price includes shipping in the continental U.S.)

Review: "I mounted a white steer skin on an old Toca Bamboo series 10" quinto and I can't believe how good it sounds. I purchased thinner steer skins from Manito percussion but it wasn't the sound I was looking for.  The sound of the skin I got from Artdrum sounds like the drums I played as a young boy in Brooklyn. The quality of that skin is top notch!" ~E. Delgado, FL, USA, 2016

Description: Bleached steer skins are a little softer to the touch & mellower to the tone than natural steer.  Each skin from Artdrum is pre-cut and are ready to be mounted on your conga or other drum.  Our white skins are available in two thicknesses: Medium & Thick.  These skins are also recommended for Taiko drums, Batas, & Tamboras.

Skin Material: Steer

Skin Thickness & Recommendations: Thick skins produce a lower range of tones, & have a little dryer timbre, than medium skins.  A thick skin will bring out the lowest range of pitches.  Medium skins produce mid to higher range of pitiches.  Both our Medium & Thick White Steer Skins are rich, mellow & beautiful sounding.  On Conga drums, Medium skins are great on all size congas (requinto, quinto, conga, tumba, super tumba). Thick skins are used a little more often on Tumbas & Super Tumbas, yet many players also use them on Quintos & Congas.  However, for Requintos we recommend Medium skins.  Also, Medium skins are great for Taiko drums, Tamboras, and the large heads for medium & large Bata drums.
