About the Shell
This Primo Series bougarabou was carved from Khadi timber. Khadi, or hare, is the densest and hardest of West African timbers, known for powerful resonance and its signature tiger grain. Instantly recognisable and highly sought after. Many different carving styles give it a wide spectrum of sound.
About the Hide
Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodic sounds. Cranked tightly, they can really scream! Suited to experienced players with tougher hands and well-developed technique. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
Comes complete with an AD Drum Care and Tuning Guide to help you get the most play out of your drum.
