Bear, Buffalo, Elk, Horse and Moose Drums and Rattles

Steven Kauder

I have, after 20 fulfilling years of drum making, retired.
I'm still making drums that interest me. Any that
are available can be found by clicking here.

Rawhide Rattles

Many years ago, I made my first rattle with a piece of rawhide left over from the first drum I made. It was an adventure because I had no guide, only a casual reference from my first teacher.

I have learned a lot since then and have sold hundreds of rattles and rattle kits with fillings of corn, quartz crystals, or ant hill stones from the Posi Ruins in New Mexico.

Collection of Rawhide Rattles

Rattles are a great alternative to drums, and they
are traditional in many societies around the world.

Sorry, I have
Special Fillings (at additional cost)
Quartz Crystals*
Anthill Stones**

Rattle Handles were made with select branches and were
wrapped with Bear, Buffalo, Deer, Elk, or Moose leather.

*Quartz Crystals are a traditional rattle filling in some societies. Quartz Crystal Rattles have a sharper, stronger sound. I imported these single and double terminated quartz crystals from several countries.

**Anthill Stones are also a traditional rattle filling. Anthill Stone Rattles have a softer, gentler sound. I collected these stones from abandoned ant nests at the Posi ruins at Ojo Caliente, New Mexico.

From Illinois: Just wanted to let you know that I did receive the rattle, and it's GREAT! Its sound, its energy, the craftsmanship ...all very cool.
