New to Tribal Spirit: We are now offering 2 frame material choices for our Raised Edge Powwow Drums. 1) Solid white cedar wood raised edge and brand new: 2) Plywood circle raised edge. Our raised edge drums are 20″ high The rim at the top and the bottom of the frame are thicker than the middle of the frame. Thus “Raised Edge”. The tone on a raised edge is slightly more on a thud and less boom. Popular with Northern Style Powwow Singing raised edge are lighter in weight than our barrel style. We redesigned our raised edge drum using a maple wood bendable Flex Plywood that again makes the drum lighter in weight than our sold cedar frame.
New to Tribal Spirit: Solid Eastern White Cedar raised edge Powwow Drums. We have been building our own custom barrel style cedar drums for nearly 20 years but yet loving the western style raised edge drum. The only problem is that they are generally made with plywood and tons of screws holding them all together…over time the plywood delaminates with drum sound vibration and the drums start to buzz. So we went back to the drawing board and came up with a solid white cedar design that has no plywood or screws. A raised edge drum means that the top and bottom of the frame is 1/2″ proud of the centre section of the drum, so that the lacing is not touching the centre part. These are very beautiful drums and are lighter than our barrel design because much less wood involved, but yet still preserving the traditional cedar wood of old drums. We hope you like them.
