White Tail Deer Rawhide105$ US
This Raw hide is wild White Tail Deer. (we always select hides with no inconvenient bullet holes) Rawhide is used to make Hand Drums and Rattles. Raw hide is not leather….it has not been tanned….The process of creating rawhide involves removing the hair and thats it!! When soaked in water overnight it will become soft (like skin) and then when stretched over a drum and dried the skin becomes hard and sings. These are quite large hides and will make at least 3 and as many as 5 drums (depending upon the size of drum frame).

Hand Drum Hoops22$ US – 48$ US
Our drums are VERY unusual in that we make our own hoops. These days most (virtually ALL) drum makers are using plywood maple frames made overseas or mitred multi pieced wood frames that are 8 to 12 sided.
We order white ash lumber in large dimension, and then cut it into lats of different sizes (for different hoops) and steam and bend by hand. We glue the connection with a water proof glue and then sand/router all edges. Our hoops are 98% round. Ash is a very strong wood so our hoops will not move or bend over time no matter what kind of hide is pulled over them.
