This is the smallest ashiko drum we make. The drum is about 14" tall and has 8 1/2" of playing surface on the head. It has 36 thin staves that we cut, glue, rout, file, sand sand sand, and varnish. The rings used to head the drum are 1/4" steel we roll and weld ourselves. The rope is high quality nylon core with very little stretch that is usually found on sailboats. We use goatskin for the head as it lasts long and stays in tune really well.

Being small and made from soft woods, it is extremely light and perfect for a variety of players. Little kids can sit right on them and play. Our traveling drums also fit into backpacks and are the right drum to bring along when camping, hiking up to that mountain top, or if you are a wandering spirit without much room to spare.

All of our drums are great for beginner up through studio quality playing. Please don't hesitate to e-mail or call with any questions.....pre or post purchase. We have been making drums about 12 years, love what we do and just want to spread the music.
