14" Moose Hide drum
14" tie-dyed 13-sided, moose hide frame drum. Comes with a mallet made from a stick prepared by a beaver and a cloth carrying bag.
This moose drum has a low, clear booming voice with soothing vibrations. The Chakra colours start with red on the inside going out to purple on the edge. Unique colouration in this moose hide adds beauty. Some of the hair is still attached to remind you of the grand animal that it was made from.
I make all the drums myself including fleshing, de-hairing and stretching the hide, making the wooden frame, cutting the lacing from rawhide, tie-dying (of just dying) the hide and finally stretching the drum.
The frame is made with 13 sides to represent the lunar calendar.
It is strung into 5 sections, one for each finger. But you can play it however you feel comfortable.
This drum has a low booming voice. The vibrations it creates are good for the soul.
The mallet is made from leather and a "beavered" stick (really - a Canadian beaver helps me).
The carrying bag is a cloth with a woven strap. Choose from the bags in the attached photo or ask for something different to suit you.
The skin is translucent allowing the light to shine through it.
