These pre-cut discs made of cow rawhide are
ideal for making Native American drums, Shaman drums, traditional Japanese
drums, and drums in
general. The thickness used produces the best sound for the size: discs 26" and below are just under 1/8" thick, while the larger discs are at or just over 1/8" thick. Rawhide is also referred to as parchment or vellum.
The translucent cow rawhide discs are relatively the same thickness as the other cow rawhide discs we carry, but with a more translucent look.
Cow rawhide is thicker than goat rawhide and is more suitable for making drums that use drumsticks. Goat rawhide is really thin and is better suited for making hand drums.
