A cow skin djembe is best for djembefolas looking for a warm sound close to the conga, a soft sound with powerful tonic notes and few harmonics. This kind of djembe is trending right now, for many reasons:
- The durability of cow skin is better than that of goat skin which is used traditionally on a djembe,
- It is thicker and makes a dryer sound, a round tonic, a precise slap: its harmonics do not overwhelm in venues with a lot of reverb (gyms, certain other spaces),
- It allows the soloist to create a sound different from djembe drums mounted with goat skin which may be accompanying it.
