This 16″ Shamanic Drum is made from Red Deer hide, the hoop is English Ash waxed with beeswax from rescued bees, and we have set a Tigers Eye Crystal in the handle.

For all the dreamers who are caged by their own self-doubt, the Tiger’s eye crystal can aid you in breaking through those invisible bars you have surrounded yourself with.
The energy of Red Deer
When we encounter the Red Deer in the wild, our breath catches and we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. We can draw on their energy to give us the power to deal with challenges with grace. As Red Deer holds a real gentleness, we can be sensitive and intuitive was we walk our path. We can also hold onto vigilance and also adaptability, with the ability to change direction quickly should we need to. Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures.
Timescales from the point of your order
It can take up to three weeks for us to make a drum and arrange for it to posted to you. This is because depending on the weather, the drum needs at least a week to dry once we have birthed it, and we don’t rush the drying process as it makes sure you get the best possible quality drum. Also because of the nature of our work, as we are taken away running retreats, we are not always able to begin work on your drum straight away, and also, sometimes we are waiting for a new supply of materials too. This is why we say three weeks, but often we are able to turn around an order a little quicker. If timescales are of importance to you please state this at the time ordering and we will do our best to meet them.
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. The Red Deer hide used to make this drum is from Scotland and 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.
