About

From material to spiritual

Hello!
Thank you for paying attention to my drums!
My name is Max, I am 39 years old, and I have been making drums for three years now.
After I turned 36, I felt that I wanted to buy a shaman drum for myself, but oddly enough, in my region, it was quite difficult to acquire a shaman drum. From what was offered on sale, I did not like the quality or inflated price. then I decided to make myself a shaman drum... it took me several months, but I did it all the same))) you can see it on my avatar. After that, I decided to make and give a shaman drum to my friend. He really liked him, and still uses it. Despite the fact that both of these drums were made of plywood, and not as well as I do now, they are still in great shape with excellent sound.
After that, the creation of shaman drums , became my hobby.
Today, I created about 80 unique drums, which have found their owners in different places of our Planet. They were shamans, psychologists, yogis, and people who felt that they liked the magic sound of a shaman drum.

My history.
When my father found out that I started making shaman drums, he told me that his father (my grandfather) was engaged in processing goat skins for furs. This craft was for him an additional income to feed his family of five children, in the postwar period. Also, once grandfather made a drum. The drum of the Soviet pioneer. I even found it in the attic of the house, and I plan to restore it :)
My grandmother (through my mother's lineage) hails from Altai - the place where the ancient Siberian shamans lived - was a connoisseur of fear and fright in children, in our village.
I myself was also born in Altai, but I live all my life in Ukraine - this is 2500 kilometers further)))))
As a result, such information about my ancestors finally confirmed in my mind that I should continue to make shaman drums.
The skill of working with the skin of animals, and the power of healing, transmitted to me by blood, fill my drums with a special power that my customers feel. They feel it and not once told me about it.


Now.
Recently, I opened my shop on Etsy and I suggest you, dear friend, get acquainted and, if you like, purchase one of my drums.

Technology.
I make all my drums from natural materials, the main part of which is made up of wood for the rim and goat skin for membranes.
I purchase the rim from my partner from Western Ukraine. I used to make them myself, but now I order from a partner. He makes high-quality rims from solid pieces of ash wood.
I acquire the skin for membranes from a partner in Pakistan, from a person to whom technologies of processing animal hides have been passed down from generation to generation. These are high-quality goat skins that give a wonderful sound to the instrument.
I do the rest of the process of assembling drums by myself.
A very important moment in the creation of a drums, I devote to the membrane coupler. This is done in a special way, which I learned from one master from Russia. This method makes it possible to fix the membrane in such a way that the drum will serve you for many long years, and if you take care of the membrane, you can transfer your shaman drum to your children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren.

In the winter season, I make tambourines at home in the city, and in the warm season, in a country house, closer to nature, where my ancestors lived - my grandfather, about whom I told you above in my story.

Well, probably all))))
