Native American Drums
   

9 inch Sioux Drum These are the traditional drums of the American Pueblo and Plains Indians made in the traditional manner. Each drum has its own character and sound. The drums are made from the native woods of New Mexico. The wood is peeled, slowly dried and hollowed. The skins are cleaned and carefully scraped in the traditional manner and the rawhide lacing is hand cut and stretched. These drums often have different pitch and tone. Generally more humid environments than the Southwest can cause a lower pitch. You may tighten drum heads by warming them by the fire, sunlight, or heater. Diameter is calculated by the greatest shell width across the top. Drums may vary in size. Other types and sizes available. If you don't see what you're looking for, give us a call.

Sioux Drums are from 3-1/2" to 9" in height (depth), and are always wider than they are tall. They are made from 12 sections of wood (one for each month of the year), carefully pieced together and sanded, with rawhide skin on both sides and rawhide lacing. Because they are lighter in weight than the taller Pueblo drums, they are recommended for dance, healing and trance work. 9". NAD004   $95.00

9 inch x 12 inch Pueblo Drum Every drum is handmade from natural materials and renewable resources over a year-long process. Drum frames are created from wood native to Northern New Mexico - cottonwood, aspen or pine. Logs are stripped of bark, hollowed out, cut into sections, then stored in a warehouse and slowly dried to prevent cracking. Dried wood is later leveled and sanded.

Drum heads are made from cow hides that have been thoroughly cleaned and scraped to maintain the highest level of sound, appearance and durability. After soaking the rawhide to make it pliable, the hide is hand-scalloped, stretched and secured with rawhide lacing to the frame.

Each completed drum will have its own distinct voice. The type of wood, the depth and diameter of the frame, the thickness and tightness of the hide, the thickness of the walls, temperature and humidity - all affect the tone. 9"x12". NAD009   $105.00
