Our Sweat Lodge Drum is the perfect drum for a sweat lodge. The drum is covered with Buffalo hide and made with a 14" x 5 7/8" maple frame. We choose Buffalo because it is typically the thickest hide that holds up to humidity the best. This traditional double headed drum is guaranteed to hold its tone in a sweat lodge. The drum is made by our Pacific Northwest Native American drum maker, so it is guaranteed to be well tied and is sure last you a lifetime. The tone of the drum is higher, though definitely appropriate for holding a beat and the nature of songs in a sweat lodge. The drum mallet as pictured is included with the purchase of the drum.
