Sunreed's Traditional Native American frame drums are handmade by a North West Native American drum maker. He handcrafts beautiful, well tied, full wrap, frame drums which will withstand the rigors of long and rigorous use! Each drum is made in the traditional way in ceremony and with prayer. For a more detailed discussion of these drums, see our main page for them HERE.
For most adults, we recommend the 18" size drums, for a full, rich tone, easy to hold. Smaller framed adults may prefer a 16 drum, which still has a good bass note. For children, depending on age, you may wish a 10-14" drum.
Each drum is unique and individual, a one of a kind. Color of the skins may vary, certainly with different types of hides. The frames are made of maple. We highly recommend these excellent quality, and very reasonably priced drums. They are handcrafted in the USA.
We are offering a gift set that includes a everything you or a loved one would need to start drumming - including:
- a brilliant 16 or 18 inch Native American Frame Drum made by our North West Native American drum maker, hand picked by us from our collection;
- a quality heavily padded carrying case;
- a sunreed faux/leather soft beater to bring out the most bass and resonance from your drum;
- the book The Shamanic Drum: A Guide To Sacred Drumming, a practical guide to applying the ancient healing art of drumming to our modern lives.
You can select from any of our skin choices, and from a 16" or 18" drum and case. When either of these sizes are paired with our sunreed soft beater, they create full bodied and deep resonance. The price for this gift set is set at 15% off retail value for an average savings of $45 dollars.
Please call us at 802-674-9585 or email us at email@example.com if you need help choosing a drum.
