Do you carry Mule skin for congas or bongos?

In the past we offered what we thought were thick mule skins for congas, but a DNA test from a major agricultural university revealed that they have absolutely no horse, mule or donkey genetics. They do have some bovine DNA markers, and were likely Nili Ravi water buffalo marketed as mule. These skins perform well for the thick conga head aficionados, and can be purchased through our store.

For bongo machos, we have changed to using horse skin. Horse is a bit brighter than mule skin, yet it is every bit as tough and tonal.
