A new shipment of 20″ diameter 1.2mm-3mm thick Middle Eastern Steer has arrived! Longstanding relationships with our suppliers allow us to offer top quality skins that are consistent in thickness, free of blemishes and sound great. This steer is classified as warm and classic with crisp slaps, round open tones, rich bass and controlled overtones- our shop favorite. Also available as PreMounted™ heads.

New Manito Skins For My Timba Drums

Thank you for sharing your support, insights and knowledge Maestro Edgardo Cambon. Your contribution to our percussion community has always been positive- a ray of light.

It’s true, a high quality skin improves the sound and feel of a drum. We put a lot of time and energy into providing the highest quality skins available. It really comes down to relationships with our suppliers and desire to help others with upgrades in a transparent, honest and sustainable way. It’s also a great deal of fun!
