Please note: Bob occasionally makes a Jeans Drum like this one, but chooses differing fabrics and decorations for each one. Thus, this is the only drum like it in the world, nearly impossible to duplicate.

12" Regular Frame Blue Jeans Drum

  • The world has had a love affair with blue jeans for over 100 years as the versatile go-to staple for day-to-day casual as well as rough-and-tumble use in school, play or work-- and even as wedding attire! Now, finally, they have come to a drum with the same spirit!


    Express yourself!


    This is a beautiful drum inside and out, another great option available when you are shopping for a drum. This one has a top quality Elk drum head and beautiful decorations.


    Not everyone wants just another drum, particularly if you are on a spiritual path or in need of a reliable instrument for your work or for drum circles... or anywhere else you wish to express yourself. You've come a long way in search of personal freedom and unfettered expression. May as well have a drum that's up to the job no matter where you are. Perhaps this is the drum for you, the one that says "Live Free!"
