About Decorations:
A decorated drum includes several feet of sumptuous deer suede lacing or luscious bunched yarns and beads meticulously wrapped and secured to your drum. This is a time consuming job, but well worthwhile in providing a comfortable grip and unsurpassed beauty to your healing ally drum.
 
About Timing & Painting:
Timing: Please expect your drum to take two weeks or so to be birthed. If you wish to have your drum painted, please allow at least an additional week or so, depending on the artist's availability. 

Painting: With the Painted option you may have your favorite totem animal (or other subject) painted on your drum. The fee for one image varies by drum size for one subject and is noted in the price. If you want more than one subject painted on the same drum, or if the artist determines that the subject is very complex and / or highly detailed like in a complicated repeating pattern or an elaborate background, there is an additional fee of $25 per subject or element. Bob will notify you if either of these conditions apply.

Thunder Valley Drums

BASIC VERSION AND OPTIONS

The smallest drum I make, at 9 3/4-inches across (diameter), the Firefly is quite inexpensive, too, even though you will experience nothing but quality when you hold it and play it. Several plies of strong birch wood make this a very sturdy frame, and I add a 1/8-inch deer or elk lacing (depending on availability) to hold down the rawhide drum head.


This is a great "second drum" to have when you don't want to transport a larger one. Wonderful to have on hand to lend to a friend during a drumming circle, too.


And, if you're just starting out along the path and don't want to spend a lot before you know whether you will want to proceed, this is a perfect drum. It will last a long time, like all the other drums I make, and will keep its value, should you wish to sell it to someone else. That's the difference that quality makes.

The Firefly Drum is so well suited for travel, or to carry in a backpack or rucksack for drumming in the wilderness. Yes, its distinctive note is light, nearly playful, but in ceremony or when participating in a sacred drumming circle, this drum is all business, a serious healing ally.

Tap the Firefly Drum. It is sound become light.
 
I would love to make one for you now.

Bob's Thoughts About the Firefly Drum

A Firefly Photo Album

The Firefly Drum is so lightweight it's like holding a firefly in your hand. But when you play it, oh, you will make light! It is the heart of lightning!

Please note that because the drum heads are made from natural animal hide and not a chemical synthetic plastic, the sound will vary slightly. This sound file is a good guideline, though. Click the play button below to hear the Firefly.
