American Deer Rawhide Spirit Drum on Maple Hoop

Starting at: $175.00

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.

American 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.

These hides come from hunters. These drums cannot be exported without a special license and a veterinary certificate. If you wish one exported to your country, you will have to pay the associated fees, currently around $90.00. Please contact me.

Maple is a wood of balance, used both for food (syrup) and the preservation of meat through its fragrant smoke. The hoops are machine made 10-ply, steamed and wrapped, and are quite strong and somewhat heavy. They are approximately 2 7/8" deep.
These drums come with a beater. The soft beater is recommended for these drums.
