Description

This drum is handmade from elk raw hide on a cedar wood frame. My husband makes the frames. I cut, punch, and string up the hide. Then after the leather dries, I sit with the drum until it shows me what to paint on it.

This one is of a male & a female Buffalo in a storm in Montana or South Dakota. When I traveled through there, I was deeply impressed with the power of the lightning, thunder & hail in this area. Mother nature is quite commanding.

A drum beater is included. This one is cherry wood with a leather head.

I always accept custom orders!

The drums can be 8 sided or 10 sided, which is more circular.
12 or 15 inches across, 2 inches deep.
Made from elk, deer, or goat (buffalo & moose are too thick for hand held drums).
With a personalized inscription burned inside the frame.
And my favorite part: whatever animal, natural environment, & symbols that you resonate with I can paint on it for you. I will work directly with you to design the artwork exactly how you want it.
The acrylic paint is extremely adhesive and flexible. Drums that I've had 20 years, look the same as when I first made them. No cracking or flaking of the paint and the sealant protects the paint from UV damage, dust, and fading. Please don't hang them in direct sunlight though.
