Hand drums are fun and easy to play, and they sound great when paired with the native flute. Hand drums are especially good at setting a bass rhythm while a native flute plays a melody.
From a simple rhythm or complex drum pattern, the native flute and the hand drum make an great musical combination that can truly enhance ones playing experience.
Unfortunately, due to U.S. export laws our deer hide drums are restricted for being shipped international.
We are only able to ship drums within the U.S.
Our hand drums are handcrafted in Indiana, USA by our friend Wayne Manthey. Here is what Wayne has shared with us about these hand drums he creates "This drum is alive. Just like all things, it is one of a kind. It is unique in sound and craftsmanship. It will last for many generations if treated with care."
Each drum features a hand-chosen stone that is worked into each drum's handle providing a solid, grounding grip for the drum player.
Hand drums provide a variety of musical tones depending on where the face of the drum is played. At the outside edges tones have a higher tone, while the center of the drum has a much deeper tone.
The diameter of the drum (the drum's size) also helps determine the drum's sound; generally larger drums have deeper tone while smaller drums have a high tone.
Each of our hand drums includes a wooden mallet with a padded leather-end so you have a choice of playing the drum using your hand or with the leather mallet.
