Shamanic Frame Drums
Group with drums on beach
I like these drums for shamanic circles, ceremonies, and personal use because they are light, easy to hold, well-made and more resonant (big tone) than any drums I’ve seen for their size and price. You can play them with the beater or with your hand for a lot of sound variety.

18" ($60) $57 (My students seem to buy this one the most. It has a good resonant tone and its size is easy to manage.)   3 lbs.
22" ($78) $74 (My preferred size to use. Light enough to hold for long periods of time and move around with while drumming while having a deep resonant voice.)   4 lbs.
30" ($120) $108 (Big booming tone; not as easy to hold for long periods as the smaller sizes but what a sound! Great for drum circles and healing ceremonies.) 4 lbs. Due to its size, it ships in a 30 lb box

Raindrum goatskin


Raindrum  Two fixed goatskin heads on a frame contain beads that bounce and roll off the membranes' inside surface. Sounds like rain and thunder. Lots of fun to use with many kinds of sound possible from shaking, rolling, tapping, or beating the raindrum. 14" ($58) $55




Fiberskyn head drums by Remo (made in U.S.A.) are sturdier and more adaptable to weather conditions than the natural skin head drums above. In dry climates, natural skin drums can shrink and crack; in humid conditions, natural skin drums can become dull. You might consider having a Fiberskyn drum if you travel with your drum to various climates or live in extreme dry or moist conditions. I am amazed at the beautiful quality of tone of these Fiberskyn drums and how natural they look. Since I moved to Arizona, they are my drums of choice.

Braided cords are used for cross bracing to add to the look and feel of the Buffalo Drum. The center of the cording is comfort-coated for hours of enjoyable play. Beat near the center of the drum for deep pitches and accent them with higher pitch rhythms from the edge of the drum. Over all size is 14/16/22 inch diameter shell by 3.5 inch deep, includes soft tipped mallet.
