In-stock and Custom Made Drum to Order

Several Drums Available now, and I will make to order as needed. This drum is made in sacred ceremony and blessed by master drum maker and shamanic practitioner Katherine Skaggs.

Get your own 8-sided octagonal shape 15″ hide drum custom made in ancient native style by Katherine Skaggs in a traditional way in ceremony and with prayer. It is handcrafted with great love and attention. It is a well tied, full wrap frame drum made for rigorous use. Katherine also provides documentation for the “Care and Feeding of Your Drum”, so you will have a long lasting relationship with your drum.

This drum is excellent for drum circles, personal use in ceremony and ritual, as well as in shamanic healing and other sound healing practices. Great size to travel with.

This hide drum is a living drum. Being made of hide, it reflects the heat, humidity and dryness of the environment. It is tunable once you understand the living, movement of its nature. The drum frame is made of maple, and the drum stick is alder wood with a dear skin head.

Hide Choices

Both Elk and Deer rawhide are available as choices for the drum skins.

Customize with Fur or Fur and Tail

Custom drums can add special leathers to the hand wrap and or beater for an up charge, as well as adding various furs at an additional cost to make this YOUR drum, that carries your medicine. If you don’t see an option, make sure to ask.

Wolf, Fox, and Coyote can be added. Horsetail can be added for an additional charge. Price varies depending on availability.

**** Wolf tail is currently out of stock and unavailable.

**Request Katherine to put additional prayers and blessings into your drum before she ships.
