Goat Skin natural hair use for Djembe Bodhran Snare Drum

Djembe: The goat skin, with its natural hair intact, is often used as the drumhead for Djembe drums. The hair can add a distinctive buzz or rattle to the sound, contributing to the instrument’s characteristic timbre.

Bodhran: Goat skin is a popular choice for the playing surface of Bodhran drums. The natural hair left on the skin can create a slightly rougher texture, which can help produce a variety of tones and articulations when played with a tipper or beater.
