10" Deer Hide Drum with Mallet
10" round frame drum of white-tailed deer hide. Comes with a padded mallet and cloth carrying bag.
Here comes the sun!
I made all of the drum myself including fleshing, de-hairing and stretching the hide, making the wooden frame, cutting the lacing from rawhide, tie-dying the hide and finally stretching the drum.
This drum features a sun-like starburst design.
The frame is made from a repurposed wooden bowl.
The colour is dyed into the hide so that it will not wear off with use.
The drum has a delicate bell-like sound and the vibrations it creates are good for the soul.
The mallet is made from leather and a "beavered" stick.
The carrying bag is cloth.
This drum has a relatively low clear voice and cheery sunshine colours that just make you feel good!
