Reindeer Rawhide European Style Drum on a Maple Hoop

Starting at: $245.00

The energy of the reindeer drum is connection to the family and ancestors, surefootedness on one's path and ease in social interactions. The reindeer is as important to the people of Northern Europe as the Buffalo is to people of the American Plains. As such, reindeer also carries the energy of abundance and goodness for all the people.

The reindeer hides I use are imported from Finland, where they are native. Please allow an additional 1-2 weeks for custom orders.

Reindeer drums are a lovely cream color. The hide is thin and has a superior resonance. The sound is unlike any other drum, having a primal quality.

The reindeer I get are farm raised and used for food.

Maple is common in both Europe and North America. It is considered a tree of balance, wisdom and prosperity. The life cycle of the Maple exemplifies the turning of the seasons. Maple is used to make many things including musical instruments, and is considered a tonewood, which is a wood that carries sound waves well. It is a hard wood with a bright sound. These hoops are machine made 10-ply and are heavier but extremely durable. The hoop is approximately 2 7/8" in depth.

These drums come with a beater. Soft beaters are recommended.
