This is a Maidu made 8 Sided Native American Drum, with hand made cedar frame, available with either Deer or Buffalo skin.
Our drum maker designs the tightest, sturdiest drums we have ever offered, able to last a lifetime. These drums are typically able to withstand humidity and keep their tone longer than most of the drums we have found available.
The sound of the drum is similar to a 16 inch round drum, with a clear bass note, and a little bit of a higher note. This depth of the drum will shift with the climate, getting higher in dryer areas and lower in humid climates. The tone of the drum can be altered by applying water to moisturize the hide, or heat to dry the hide.
If you live in a humid climate, the Buffalo will hold its tone longer before needing to be dried.
