We use dye on our drums not paint because paint increases the likelihood that a drum skin will crack. Hides are constantly moving with humidity changes but paint doesn’t like to move…and there is the problem. Dye works like a tattoo and naturally moves with the movement of the skin. But it is kinda tricky to dye specific images onto hide. Hides have to soak in the dye for 24 hours and getting a feather or an animal image is interesting… but our techniques have evolved…as long as the image isn’t TOO detailed we will be able to apply your image to a hide.
So…. Once you complete your purchase please email us the image or an approximate image to [email protected]. I will confirm with you when I see the image. If you are not sure, but you want a bear, or a feather or an eagle….let me know and I will contact you with a few image ideas for you to approve. Delivery for a custom drum is about a week.
