Red Stag Deer Harmonic Shamanic Drum on Maple Hoop

Starting at: $165.00

The energy of the deer drum is all about love and circulation, both within the body and throughout the universe. It resonates in the mid range at the level of the heart chakra. Because deer are found on all continents, they have been an important food source to all people. Their gentleness, beauty and shy nature bring to mind the nature of love itself. When I work with deer, I feel the energy of a young and innocent maiden who is just setting out on her life journey.

Red Stag Deer are native to Europe and are larger than their American counterparts. They are the Hart of legend, reserved for nobility in feudal times. They appear frequently in Norse and Celtic stories.

Red Stag Deer drums tend to be cream colored. The hide tends to be thicker around the hind quarters and thinner around the belly and forequarters. The hide is very pliable and stretchy and requires a great deal of gentleness when drum making. Deer is highly resonant.

Red Stag Deer is farm raised in the US, so the hides that I get are from animals who have been 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. The soft beater is recommended for these drums.
