etsy1 A drum is a heartbeat. It is a living creation, it is a therapeutic tool, it is one of the basest of instruments connected to what it is to be alive. Almost every culture has their own type of drum, and with that drum comes specific meaning and purpose.

The drums that I create or paint vary widely in style, but their purpose is the same. A drum is a symbol for life, for the rythms that keep every living thing going. These drums are completely hand crafted and made with natural materials. Each drum is unique, each has its own voice. Each of these drums is perfect for meditation, music making, and display. They have been specially sealed so they are fully playable even when painted. Contact us to find the drum that is just right for you!

Please note that production time can take 1-3 weeks depending on size and material availability. I try to keep most of my drum sizes in stock but each one is painted to order and sometimes a certain size needs to be made from scratch. If you need the drum right away, or want to know a more exact shipping date, please email me!
