This 18″ Shamanic Drum is made from Horse hide, the hoop is English Ash waxed with beeswax from rescued bees, and we have set a Dragonstone 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 Dragonstone
Dragonstone is also known as Wild Serpentine, and it brings with it the energy of calming and nurturing. A grounding stone, it helps you to keep your feet firmly planted supporting you to move forward. Dragonstone can quieten the inner critic and help keep an open mind. It enhances keen perception, encourages involvement with whatever you turn your mind to and boosts personal power.
The energy of Horse
This incredible animal transformed the World once its speed and power were harnessed. The horse was the first thing that allowed humans to travel faster than their two legs, and this unsung hero of mankind has had an impact on the World everywhere it has gone and on every aspect of life. History tells us that civilization was made by men, but it was the energy of the horse that built it. Drawing on the energy of Horse will give you inner strength and will be a driving force for you in your life. We can use Horse energy to overcome obstacles in life and pursue our goals no matter what may stand in our way. An enabler, Horse will help you thrive in finding the motivation that you need and the passion to see things through. The energy of Horse is about personal drive, passion and an appetite for freedom.
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.
Your drum beater
Your suede drum beater is included within the price.

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 and awakening them in ceremony over incense.
We also take great care in the sourcing of our materials. The Red Deer hides used to make our drums come from Scotland and the 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.
