10" Deer Hide Drum with Mallet and Cloth Bag
10" 13-sided, white-tailed deer hide frame drum. This unique drum was made from the hide of a deer that suffered from a tick infestation. This caused a unique scarring pattern. Don't worry, the ticks are all gone, just leave a beautiful pattern. This drum has a nice bell-like tone. The drum comes with a mallet made from a stick prepared by a beaver and a cloth carrying bag. I made all of this drum, mallet and bag myself including fleshing, de-hairing and stretching the hide, making the wooden frame, cutting the lacing from raw hide and finally stretching the drum. The frame is made with 13 sides to represent the lunar calendar. This drum has a delicate bell-like sound and the vibrations it creates bring peace to the soul.
