This goat skin offers the convenience of simply wetting and installation, saving you the time and hassle of shaving the hair. The standard thickness shaved goat skin is suitable for most small and standard size djembes, and will provide the classic djembe sound with low bass, medium tones, and high, clear slaps. Each skin is selected from our on-hand inventory of hair-on goat hides from Mali, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Senegal, and Burkina Faso, and inspected for natural flaws or defects that could affect sound or longevity of the skin. Hair color and skin pigmentation vary, with the majority of top layer skin pigment being greyish-brown (shave deeper for whiter skin color).
Skin Warranty: Before shipping each skin is inspected for natural flaws that may affect longevity or sound, and we will accept returns of new skins if a natural blemish is found upon arrival. Because the shaving, soaking, mounting, drying, and tuning processes ares subject to the skill of the drum builder, and to the natural strength of the skin, we cannot warranty skins once they have been soaked or shaved.
