Yambú Skinwood

YD442 Yambú Peruano Skinwood Black

The queen of Yambú Drums is indisputably the Peruano. With the new Skinwood playing surfaces, the symbiosis of modern Cajon sound with a conga style of playing is brought to perfection. The wood and skin have the advantage of enabling a rich snare response, an extremely round bass sound combined with crisp slaps, which come into their own on the new Skinwood Peruano. Ideal as a full Cajon substitute for the percussion setup.

  • Playing surface: Skinwood with goatskin (pat.)
  • Resonance box: 7 layers of alder
  • Height: incl. stand approx. 80 cm; Ø approx. 14“
  • Premium components for best sound and best quality
  • Incl. Stand
