Tribal Kits

During this time when we are all spending way more time at home that we would want to, we keep creating crafting kits to help bring us together.  In fact many of Native schools and organizations have started doing zoom-led workshops with our kits.

We are very particular with the standards of our product and the same goes with our kits….we double check that instructions make sense, that everything that is required is included and that the quality of the kits meets our standards…..if we couldn’t make an amazing rattle out of our kits why would we send one to you?

  • Hand Drum Bag Kit

  • Hand Drum Hoops

    21$ US46$ 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.
