Round Rawhide Drums

Many years ago, I got my first rawhide drum in New Mexico. I was excited, but the magical tone did not last. The drum skin was too thin, did not hold its tension, and the skin soon tore.

When I started making drums for others, I remembered that first experience and I worked to make sure that others were not disappointed. As a result, I have had a great many satisfied clients around the world.

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

Round Shaman Drums are the most traditional shape.
These drums are found in nearly all parts of the world.

I made drums with a Drum Awakening Ceremony
and with prayers and blessings.

Other Hides for Drums

Please note that a 16-inch drum typically has a
much bigger sound than a 14-inch drum.

A Drum Mallet with a handle wrapped with Bear, Buffalo,
Deer, Elk, or Moose leather came with each Drum.

Client's Drum Welcoming Ceremony

This is a Buffalo Drum I made for an individual in the
western United States. This photo shows a part of the
ceremony to welcome the drum and two drum mallets.

From New York: I just wanted to say hello and say that I am LOVING the drum. The sounds are amazing. Actually the drum is not drumming it is singing. It is amazing. It really has a soul and I just step back and let it do its thing. This morning's drumming was so beautiful and subtle and the range of notes were amazing.
