All of the drums displayed on this page are available for my Christmas Special. I have a full line of Painted Drums. All designs are by me, as are the drums. When you buy one of my painted 16" elkhide drums, you get a FREE 12" drum and beater. This is a great special, two drums for the price of one.
When you checkout for this special, you won't see the 12" drum in your cart, shipping for 12" drum is also FREE. Know that it will be shipped along with your painted drum! at no charge whatsoever!
Drums are made of elk hide and maplewood, laced with sinew and wrapped with deerskin. The back of the drum is made in a traditional way to honor the four directions. The beaters are made of hardwood and wool. My drums have a depth and resonance that is not often found in smaller drums.
Drum making is a tradition passed from our ancestors to those who keep it true and sacred. These drums are used for personal drums, in drum circles, by people in drum groups, on stage by many celebrities, singers, by medicine people and shamanic healers. The drum is a deep and sacred part of American Indian culture. The beat of the drum is in sync with the heartbeat of mother earth. It is the healing rhythm that we hear when singing, dancing, or respectfully walking through this world. The round form of the drum represents the circle of life and the entire universe.
