I have retired after 20 years of insightful drum making.
I am still making drums that interest me. If any are
available, they can be found by clicking here.


Broken Buffalo Drum

After making more than 500 drums, I finally had a frame crack. I was making this drum for a client in the Middle East.

The drum head is attached to the frame with wooden pins. Drums like this look great and hold their tension very well with humidity changes.

But, the frame cracked along the grain where I placed the wooden pins. I can't sell this drum, but it still has a fabulous tone ... and it's now part of my own collection!
