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

Estimated delivery time: 1 - 2 weeks

Skin Material: Steer, white (bleached)

White Steer Skin Thickness Options:

Medium skins: approximately 1.75 - 2.2 mm

Thick skins: approximately 2.2 - 3 mm 

Description: White produce a drier and woodier timbre than natural steer skins (natural steer produces a brighter timbre than white).  Our white steer skins have the smoothest texture compared to the natural steer skins & cow skins.  The smooth texture makes playing easier on the hands and feels great to the touch.  Our medium white steers are commonly used on congas and Taiko drums and are also great for Batas, Tamboras and any drum for which you want a drier sound and need a thickness of about 1.75 - 2.2 mm.

Sound Quality: Medium skins produce a brighter timbre & higher tonal range than thick skins; thick skins produce a deeper bass & lower tonal range than medium.
