Hand Drum Kits34$ US – 114$ US
Introducing our new 8″ and 11″ Kids drum kits.
(we recommend 8″ kits ages 0-5, 11″ kits for ages 5-12)
For years we have been providing the most amazing adult sized 12″ and 14″ drum kits and now by popular demand we have geared up and are now offering a new line of Kids drum kits. Like our adult drums, each kit includes a hand steamed white ash hoop, a deer hide with holes punched large enough to wrap all the way over to the back of the frame. Lacing long enough to tie up the drum and weave a handle, a drum stick kit AND instructions to help anyone, even a complete beginner pull an amazing drum.
12″ , 14″ and 16″ Hand Drum Kits
Our kits include an amazing instruction manual, a rawhide circle (large enough to wrap all the way over to the back of the drum) with holes punched, lacing long enough to pull the drum and weave a handle, one of our steamed white ash hoops, and a drum stick kit…which includes a moose leather head (to be sewn with the included glovers needle and sinew), sheep’s wool, maple stick and sinew/needle to tie it on. We are very used to dealing with small or huge orders.
Hand Drum Hoops19$ US – 34$ US
White Ash Hand Drum Hoops. 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. My understanding is that a hand drum made 500+ years ago would have looked very much like ours (ok maybe not dyed. lol) but someone would have gone out, cut down a tree, split it and then bent it to approximately round. We order white ask 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.
