Translucent Buffalo Hide Rounds
These are high-quality imported rawhide rounds. They are a gorgeous golden color with natural mottlings, and are translucent enough that you can place an image behind them to use as a template for adding illustrations to, or painting on, your drums. They are planed to a fairly even thickness and are thin enough to be perfect for Shaman-style drums.
To determine the size you need for a given hoop:
Diameter + (2 X depth) + 2 = the correct size of round
for an 18" Mulberry frame (which are 4 inches in depth)
18 + (2 X 4) + 2 = 28
so you would want a 28-inch round.
