Buffalo Bison Rawhide Spirit Drum on Maple Hoop

Starting at: $185.00

These Buffalo Rawhide drums are made on a Maple Hoop (about 2 7/8" deep). These hoops are very strong and best able to support the strength of the buffalo. This drum is only made in the scalloped style because of the thickness of the hide. Buffalo is associated with the abundance of the people and with bringing prayers to the Creator. When I work with buffalo, it feels like a grumpy old grandfather -- the one who may not tell you what you want to hear but will always tell you what you need to hear. Maple is a wood of balance, used both for food (syrup) and the preservation of meat through its fragrant smoke.

Each drum is different and has its own personality. If you have any special needs, please let us know.

A drum beater is included, specially made and balanced to bring out the best of the drum. Hard beaters are recommended for these drums. You choose the color and density of your beater below.

The handle of the drum can be wrapped with deer suede in your choice of color for an additional $10.00.
