Wild and free spirited! The new Blue Jeans Drum sets your heart free with its real denim blues and voluptuous tie-dye sash and bold decorations.  (Read "Bob's Insights" below for more.)

  • 2 7/8" wide frame for maximum resonance.
  • Lightweight and easy to play for long periods.
  • Decorations include the unhemmed beltline from an authentic pair of  jeans, an original USA artisan-made tie-dye Shibori Wrap, wooden, copper and acrylic beads, luscious suede lacing, copper accents.
  • Drumstick also covered with denim, suede leather and lacing.
  • A small piece of Lightning-Struck cherry wood is lashed with copper wire onto the undercarriage (see closeup photo above). You can learn more about the importance of Lightning Wood in shamanic ceremonies with free articles and an eBook on this page.
  • Hear the Blue Jeans Drum on the "Hear All Drums" page, listed as 12" DEEP FRAME Elk Drum.
  • Subsequent drums will appear with a similar blue jeans motif, but decorations and colors will vary. 
  • The drum stand is not included, but can be purchased separately here.
  • Includes complimentary Empowerment Gift.
  • Cannot be exported.


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.


Want a Jeans Drum with your decorations / or larger size / or whatever is distinct for you? Bob can also make a Jeans Drum for you to your specifications for size and decorations. If interested, please contact him for more information via email. Prices will vary.

12" Deep 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 two big upgrades over the previous one I made: An extra wide frame (like the 12" Deep Frame you'll see listed separately), and a top quality Elk drum head. These combine to offer a deeper voice and a more durable drum for your meditation, shamanic healing ceremony, safe relaxation / altered state enhancement during therapy sessions, or drum circle gathering.


    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 play. 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!"
