As requested, just finished skinning up my matching set of khadi duns..
Diameters: 16" - 12.5"- 10.5"
Height: 71cm - 51cm - 50cm
(and no, I don't know why heights are metric and diameter imperial!!)
Got these puppies from Simon Fraser in Melbourne (see his website africandrumming.com.au under shop\duns for what they look like raw), was tempted by the lenke set, but while lenke had the "spirit" for djembe, khadi is denser and brighter in sound, so I wanted performance!!
I must say, a full cow skin is humungous, and the smell of wet raw cowhide has to be experienced to be believed!!!
They are still drying, but once fully tuned, I will post a video to youtube on how they sound. In the meantime, drool over the piccy's....
Thanks Michi for the inspiration of double loops, thanks to George Peel for his patience in losing 200 cowskins due to the rain, and finally coming through with the exact colour I asked for and quick postage, and thanks to Simon Fraser for the excellent service, as usual.
