6" Deer Hide Drum with Stick and Carrying Bag
6" round drum of white-tailed deer hide. Comes with a wooden stick and cloth carrying bag.
This drum features a unique tie-dyed pattern with fuchsia red and orange.
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 cute little drum sounds best when held in your hand but it sits on its own so it can easily be played with one hand, by a child or even a toddler.
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.
It has a relatively high-pitched tone.
The carrying bag is cloth and also one of a kind.
