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.

Big Voice for Earth & Sky...

THUNDER

BASIC VERSION

With Drumstick

 $185 plus $18 s/h

To US Customers*

The largest drum I make, the 15" (diameter) Thunder Drum is big on voice, and yet, you will find it to be quite lightweight. The rawhide drum head is very responsive, and resonates beautifully with the very strong laminated maple frame. In drum circles, the Thunder Drum's deep voice lends texture and prominence to the group, and in sacred ceremony, it resonates deeply within and without, in Earth and Sky, in heart and Spirit.

The Thunder Drum's form and function is made more pronounced by its ancient lineage from similar drums made since time began. Drums like these (minus, of course, the technology of modern laminating techniques) have been assembled since antiquity in the same way. Honestly, just holding such a drum and examining the lacing has the effect of connecting you with the interweaving nature of life and the ancestral power of the first drums and of the first people who made them as healing helpers. Their knowledge was awesome.

In that regard, I make all Sacred Shaman Drums in the same way, with respect for those who passed along the knowledge of how and why to make them, as well as for the deep reverence and gratitude necessary to assure the sacred character of the drums. I happily pass this on to you, should you decide to own one of these powerful Thunder Drums.


You will receive not only a reliable drum, but also a sturdy and honored partner. There is also several feet of beautiful suede lacing and/or bunched yarn lacing wrapped around and beneath the drum in the decorated version. That's a lot of value added.

There is no need to strike this drum with power, for its deep voice and strong medicine bring you all the power you need. 


I would be honored to make one for you now.
