Tribal drums, otherwise known as frame drums, are one of the most ancient musical instruments. They have a simple structure with strong spiritual and entertaining effects. Our frame drums are handmade from cow hide and sinew on a mulberry wood frame, then painted.
The bear paw is found in many Native American works of art, and is seen as a symbol of strength and healing. The sun also represents healing energy. It is recognized as a giver of life, and a provider of warmth.
Note that these natural leather drums may need to be tuned due to temperature and humidity fluctuations during shipping. Tuning is easily done with a hairdryer - the leather will contract, resulting in a tighter fit.
