This 16″ Shamanic Drum is made from Reindeer hide. We birthed this Special Edition drum at the time of the February Full Moon, which our ancient Celtic ancestors called the Snow Moon. At this time of year Spring is emerging and we are amongst the energy of new beginnings, awakenings and excitement at what the future year will hold for us. The hoop is English Ash waxed with bees wax from rescued bees, and we have set a Preseli Bluestone crystal in the handle. The tension ring is wrapped in a suede and the fluffy fabric finishes off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.
The energy of Preseli Bluestone
The Preseli Bluestone is an ancient stone of dreaming that forms the inner ring of our largest stone circle in England, Stonehenge. It has a primordial vibration with an ancient energy and will help you make a deeper Earth connection, supporting you to feel grounded. Preseli Bluestone embodies a useful vibration to enhance any situation in which it is used, as its energy is known to stimulate the highest good that is related to a situation. It can help you to overcome problems, as it assists you to face difficulties and challenges with courage and composure.
The energy of Reindeer
The Reindeer has an incredible ability to preserve in difficult environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3000 miles in one season. Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their sure footedness they can support us to utilise our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure footed in any situation, enabling us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realise our dreams.
Guidance for choosing your drum
The 14″ drums are the most portable and tend to have a higher pitch than the larger ones. Our 16″ is often seen as a great compromise between transportability and depth of voice. The larger 18″ drum is a little heavier but usually has a deeper voice. However each drum is very much an individual and can vary from what is expected.
All of our drums come with a 7-day money back guarantee, to allow you time to hold your drum in your hands and hear it’s voice, ensuring that you are right for each other.
Your drum beater
Your drum beater is included within the price of the commissioned drum.
About the making of this drum
We make our drums from our home on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England. We create the drums in sacred space each drum is birthed through ceremony, over mugwort incense.
We also take great care in the sourcing of our materials. Our Red Deer hides come from Scotland and our Reindeer hides come from Finland. The timber for the Ash hoop is sourced from UK ash and is crafted by a local carpenter in Wigan. The wood has a layer of beeswax to bring out its natural grain. The wax is from bees which have been rescued.
