Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
I am always making custom orders for people so why not do it here on Etsy as well?

Here is how it will work.
1. You purchase this listing for your 24" ashiko drum.

2. We will communicate about how you want your drum to look. Your options to choose from are:

a) Would you like cedar(reddish brown) or hemlock(light
yellowish) wood?
Both are softer woods and make for a great sounding
b) What color material you would like on the metal rings?
Options are wide open here! Pick your favorite color.
c) Would you like a bleached or furred head on the drum?
A bleached head will be thinner and have a brighter
tone. A furred head will sound earthier and will be
shaved smooth on the playing surface.

3. I build the drum to your specifications.

4. I send the drum to you and you play and play and play...

The pictures for this listing show examples of the options. The size of drum for this listing will be approximately 24" tall with a 10" head. Your drum will be built with the details we work out together. Once I know exactly what you would like, I ask for two weeks to build the drum and get it shipped out to you. I can even send you pictures along the way of your drum being built in a step by step fashion!

A tuning and care sheet goes out with every drum. We have been making drums about ten years, love what we do and just want to spread the music.

Please contact me if you have any other questions about how this listing works. I will be happy to try and clarify anything.
