Bison Hand Drum - Authentic Native American

see full description & specifications

An authentic Native American hand drum in bison hide.
Made by renowned Navajo artisan Paul Tohlakai, known worldwide for his exceptional drums and teaching of the art of traditional drum-making.
Paul developed the antler handle and unique tie-off over 30 years ago, often imitated but never the same!

Currently available in 16"and 18" sizes, larger and smaller drums (ranging in 2 inch increments from 12 to 20) can be custom ordered by contacting us at Large floor drums are custom made and quoted on according to your requirements.
The bison hide drums are the most adaptable to different climates (along with the Elk and Moose). Great care is taken crafting each drum every step of the way. Days are spent fine tuning each drum for exceptional sound quality. There are natural variations in the hide colour and thickness, coming from an animal, each hide is completely unique and no two are identical. We honour the sacredness of each animal and make these drums with respect to them. What is assured is sound and craftsmanship quality, attested to by many clients worldwide. Each drum is accompanied by drum care instructions to help you get the very best from your sacred instrument.
