What size steer skin should I mount on my conga?

To mount flat or rolled skins on your drum, it is important to have a large enough skin size to make it easy.  Having a slightly larger skin can make the difference between an easy job and a struggle.

We recommend the following sizes:

For up to 9 3/4″ Requinto –  16″ or 18″ skin.

For 9 3/4″- 11″ Quinto –  18″ or 20″ skin. 

For 11″ up to 12 1/2″ Congas and Tumbas – 20″ skin.

Over 12 1/2″ Tumbas and Super Tumbas – 22″ skin.
