Please note: This is a special order drum, not made ahead of time. The drum will be made for you specifically. If you are interested in having Bob make one for you, please email him. The price of the 12" Blue Jeans Drum is $250. U.S. shipping included. Bob will contact you after purchase to determine what sort of decorations you desire to appear with the jeans. The one shown is a sample.


Wild and free spirited! The new Blue Jeans Drum sets your heart free with its real denim blues and voluptuous orange sash. Depending on your generation, this stylish drum can be groovy, rad, Gucci or just plain cool! For sure, it's a first for Thunder Valley Drums. (Read "Bob's Insights" below for more.)

Bob's 12" Blue Jeans Drum

  • I've had a love affair with blue jeans ever since I was a farm kid who came of age in the 1960s. Like those wild times and the times we live in now, jeans are the versatile, go-to staple for day-to-day casual as well as rough-and-tumble use in school, play or work. Now, finally, they have come to a drum with the same spirit!


    This is a prototype, the pioneer of what I hope will become another great option available when you are shopping for a drum. Not everyone wants just another drum, particularly if you are on a spiritual path. 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!"
