  • 18″ ‘Samhain’ Shamanic Drum. Reindeer with Merlinite crystal handle.

18″ ‘Samhain’ Shamanic Drum. Reindeer with Merlinite crystal handle.

£370.00

This is an 18-inch shamanic drum made from Reindeer rawhide and is a special drum as it was birthed at the time of the Celtic fire festival of Samhain.

Samhain is one of the eight Celtic festivals we celebrate as we work our way around the wheel of the year. It lands between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice and marks the transition from summer to winter. It is a time of heightened connection when the veil between the worlds is thin.

We have placed a Merlinite crystal in the handle and painted a crow motif on the inside of the wooden hoop. The hoop is English Ash waxed with beeswax from rescued bees, and the tension ring is wrapped in suede with fluffy fabric finishing off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.

Merlinite is the stone of magic, shadows and descent into the deepest places within. It helps connect to the universal energies and enhances our ability to drop into the Otherworlds. A stone of wisdom, it allows us to understand the greatest beauty of life lies in its mystery.

The energy of Merlinite

Merlinite is the stone of magic, shadows and descent into the deepest places within. It helps connect to the universal energies and enhances our ability to drop into the Otherworlds. A stone of wisdom, it allows us to understand the greatest beauty of life lies in its mystery. 


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 surefootedness they can support us to utilize 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 realize 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.


Our guidance video

We have a video with guidance to help you choose your drum. Here is the link. (Scroll down the page to see the guidance video.)

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 suede drum beater is included within the price of the drum.

About the making of this drum

We make our drums from our home in the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Natural Beauty on the Lancashire coast, northwest 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.
