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.
Some people prefer a plain drum, and some prefer to add their own unique design to their drum, whether it be with paint, feathers, beads, tassels is up to the individual.
Note that these natural leather drums are affected by temperature and humidity fluctuations during shipping. Ideally, store them in a warm dry location and they will acclimatize in approximately 5 days. Tuning is quickly done with a warm hairdryer blown across the drum surface (not too close) - the leather will contract, resulting in a tighter fit.
