Fat Cat™ Buffalo

(1 customer review)


SKU: FSFC Category:


Fat Cat™ Buffalo is Middle Eastern Nili Ravi. On congas, it produces dry/woody tones, and has low action at thickness above 2.5mm. It is ideal for folkloric styles or any application where a very thick skin is preferred.

Skin thickness is recommended relative to the shell size- the larger the shell, the thicker the skin. This produces a balanced sound across the entire set of drums.

Warm and classic sound with crisp slaps, round open tones, rich bass and controlled overtones:

Requinto:  1.8mm

Quinto: 1.8mm

Conga: 2mm

Tumba: 2.2mm

Super Tumba: 2.4mm

Dry and woody sound with crisp slaps, shorter sustain and highly controlled overtones:

Requinto:  2mm (recommended)

Quinto: 2mm (recommended)

Conga: 2.2mm (recommended)

Tumba: 2.4mm (recommended)

Super Tumba: 2.6mm (recommended)

Traditional very dry and woody sound with the shortest sustain and next to no overtones.

Requinto:  2.2mm

    Skins were very nice, however I decided to exchange them for other Manito skins. Very pleased overall with Manito products.
