These Deer Skin Frame Drums were hand selected by us because they truly stood out for the quality of there tone and power. Deer skin, which is a thinner hide, usually goes flat in the summer months here in Vermont because of the humidity, those these drums withstand the humidity brilliantly. The quality of there artistic ties are high. They are made by the same talented and inspired maker who makes our bear drums for us. Among the medicines deer symbolizes are the powers of love, gentleness, magic and grace. If these drums stand out to you, please contact us at 802-674-9585 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to talk to you about them and can even play them over the phone so you get a sense of what they sound like.
