As with our Traditional Native American drums, we recommend the 18" size drums, for a full, rich tone, easy to hold and so are selling them exclusively in 18". These drums are made with buffalo hide. The hoops are hand made cedar, and is lighter to hold than other 18" drums we offer.
These drums, as they are made in Arizona and hold up best in dry climates. We have asked specifically for these drums to be tied for more humid climates in mind, though if you are in a humid climate, you may need to dry out the drum in the sun, or with dry air, or applied heat, before using it for ceremony.
