Introducing our Black Cherry wood mitred hand drums.  We live in the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal where black cherry trees are abundant (not the fruit tree but related).  We have a local farmer who selectively manages his forest and harvests limited trees per year.  We bought this wood several years ago and have been air drying it above our workshop. We then cut, planed, then cut again and created a 16 sided frame drum that is 16” diameter and 3” deep. We are using Elk on these drums and specially selecting the thicker part between the shoulders.  The cherry is a hard wood which helps the hide produce a deep rich tone. We always wrap our hide over to the back of the drum, because this makes a stronger, longer lasting drum.  We use Tung Oil on the inside of the cherry frame to bring out the colours of the natural wood. This is a special drum, and we hope you like it.
