Hello

I am hoping to make a rommelpot (contemporary instrument that sounds like a bad attack of wind). I have got hold of a very nice pot from Trinity Court Potteries, but need the membrane to stretch over the top. Most sources are a bit vague and just say " a skin", so I presume a piece of drumskin will be perfect (rather than a banana skin etc).

Can anyone tell me where I can get a couple of pieces of drumskin (about 9" square) or indeed a whole one to cut up?
