10" ($25) $24 (Easy to take traveling. A good
drum for kids. A good sound for its size.) 2 lbs.
14" ($48) $46 (Amazing that for its smaller
size, it still has a great sound.) 3 lbs.
I used my drum at a workshop over the weekend. I LOVE it!
Great size, wonderful sound and easy to carry. I have a great new friend.
18" ($60) $57
(My students seem to buy this one the most. It has a good resonant tone and
its size is easy to manage.)
22" ($78) $74 (My preferred size to use. Light
enough to hold for long periods of time and move around with while drumming
while having a deep resonant voice.) 4 lbs.
I received my drum. LOVE IT. The sound is very rich. I
started wailing on it as soon as it was out from the packaging. My husband
thought I was a little over exuberant from the look he gave me, but the next
morning he admitted in profound wonderment how he still could feel the
drum's resonance from the day before placing his hand to his sternum. I just
may have a willing participant for shamanic drumming. Thank you so much.
30" ($120) $108 (Big booming tone; not as easy to hold for long
periods as the smaller sizes but what a sound! Great for drum circles and
healing ceremonies.) 4 lbs. Due to its size, it ships in a 30 lb box
2.25" width rosewood frame, with a tunable goatskin head. The Tuning mechanisms
are mounted on the inside of the frame for a clean look. Actual weight is
about 4 lbs. Due to its size it ships in a 30 lb box.
Raindrum Two fixed goatskin heads on a frame contain beads
that bounce and roll off the membranes' inside surface. Sounds like rain and
thunder. Lots of fun to use with many kinds of sound possible from shaking,
rolling, tapping, or beating the raindrum. 14"
Your frame drum is made in
Pakistan of goat skin and rosewood. These drums are light, easy to handle,
and beautifully resonant. Treat your drum with care as you would an animal
and plant companion. For the fullest sound, beat the drum in points around
rather than exactly on the exact center.
Under excessive heat or dry
conditions, the drum head or skin may shrink, tighten, crack, and even break
the wood frame. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DRUM IN A CAR, where heat from the
sun can be intense. Keep your drum away from long exposure to both extreme
heat and very cold or freezing temperatures. High humidity can be absorbed
by the drum head so that the sound changes from “boom” to “thwuck.” Heating
the drum head carefully for awhile in the sun, with a hair dryer, or other
gentle heat source will dry it out sufficiently to restore a good sound.
Take care. Overdoing the heating can damage the drum.

head drums by Remo (made in U.S.A.) are sturdier and more adaptable to weather conditions
than the natural skin head drums above. In dry climates, natural skin drums can
shrink and crack; in humid conditions, natural skin drums can become dull. You
might consider having a Fiberskyn drum if you travel with your drum to various
climates or live in extreme dry or moist conditions. I am amazed at the
beautiful quality of tone of these Fiberskyn drums and how natural they look.
Since I moved to Arizona, they are my drums of choice.
Remo Buffalo Drum with
14" ($144) $101 16"
illustration is framed by a divided circle, reflecting the
four cardinal directions. According to Native American
belief, the four directions must be in balance for all to be
well with the world. The illustration is printed into the
Fiberskyn head to last. This elegantly simple design will
inspire you to beat out captivating rhythms. The Fiberskyn
head is pulled over a 3.5 inch deep frame providing
excellent resonance. Braided cords are used for cross
bracing to add to the look and feel of the Buffalo Drum. The
center of the cording is comfort-coated for hours of
enjoyable play. Beat near the center of the drum for deep
pitches and accent them with higher pitch rhythms from the
edge of the drum. Over all size is 14/16/22 inch diameter
shell by 3.5 inch deep, includes soft tipped mallet.
.A beautifully designed drum with great
tone and fun to play. I find the 14" drum just right for holding in shamanic
drumming circles. It has a rich, booming tone
