We’ve done the work for you by mounting the skin on cold rolled 1/4″ Stainless Steel rings for extreme durability. The ring will neither rust, nor bend out of round.  Our stainless steel flesh hoops are much stronger than the flesh hoops used in stock heads.

For a traditional Salsa sound, we recommend a medium thin steer skin for the Hembra (large drum).   Steer skin gives the hembra a deep tone and creates that traditional bongo sound heard on so many recordings.
