Hey folks, where can I find skins for West African hand drums in Atlanta?

Specifically, I'm looking for:
Djembe (Goat, hairless) and
Djun Djun / Dunun (Cow or Antelope, with hair) skins.

Thanks.

I'd be very surprised if they don't have what you need. But if they don't, they'll definitely be able to tell you where to get them.

Thanks for the suggestion JPD but I simply couldn't give them my money.

Their products are wildly marked up.

E.g., ~$30 for a Djun Djun bell that typically goes for $16 here in the US and
$30 for a West African goat skin which usually goes for about $18-20 here in the US.

And while I'll accept a lack of clear pricing when I'm in societies where bargaining/haggling is part of the culture (e.g., certain parts of Africa, Caribbean or Central/South America), I expect US stores to have very clear, visible prices. Not so at Earthshaking Music in re: to goat skins.

I was nagged by the suspicion that the prices I was being quoted were... well... opportunistic.

If anyone has other suppliers for Djembe or Djun Djun skins in or near Atlanta, feel free to suggest.
