Different darbuka skins means different tones? I had no idea! (please don't laugh hehe)
I love the way the darbuka sounds and the more I read about it on the forums, the more I think I like it :D

Oh! I thought this was an actual question! But I did click on the thread to find out the answer :D So, yeah, thanks admin. for the link! It's really interesting. Are there only 3 types of darbuka skin or does the article only describe these 3  in particular?

My preference is Arab Skin, as that is very common so I feel much more comfortable in that, but my friends are happy using Power Beat Skin, as they find it much more attractive. My logic is simple that use what you are comfortable with not what attracts you more.

Frankly speaking I donít think too much about Skin, as I leave that to the person I purchase from, I never take it from any ordinary source, but I only purchase it from reliable guy, so whatever skin he has is best for me and I donít like changing it.

These are super cool Skins, I never tried to change much because I had no option when I purchased it, but now I know that itís possible so I will definitely want to have one of these, it automatically makes the Darbuka look double cool and much better than before.

I have never purchased my own Darbuka, so itís good to know everything prior to that. I like to know whatís the difference with these skins? Is it connected to sound? If itís connected then whatís the best skin to have a better sound?
