Octagonal Double Sided Ceremonial Drum Cedar with Buffalo Skin 18″
I will make you a drum like the one in the photo: This is a beautiful hand-crafted 18″ double-sided octagonal drum made from Western red cedar and natural buffalo rawhide. This drum is made specifically to stand up to the elements of the Sweat Lodge. After four doors and 28 stones, this drum will keep its tone since it is double sided. Unlike a single-sided hand drum, Living Earth Drums are made specifically for use in Ceremonial Sweat Lodge.
The Cedar is sealed with a natural linseed oil. We use naturally processed rawhide, which has not been bleached, giving each drum a unique, organic look. The thong is taken from the same buffalo skin as the drum heads. The drum does not come with the pictured drumstick, however it does come with a handmade drumstick utilizing white willow and buffalo leather.
We are available to do custom work, making drums of all shapes and sizes utilizing any type of skin you would like, please contact us for more information if you are interested in a custom drum. We use only the finest, natural materials and utilize eco-friendly practices.
