This 18″ Shamanic Drum is made from Red Deer hide, the hoop is English Ash waxed with bees wax from rescued bees, and we have set a Carnelian Jasper Crystal in the handle.
The energy of Carnelian
The Carnelian crystal brings with it an influx of life force, creative energies and assertive will. If you are looking to build confidence, courage, passion and power within yourself then this is the drum for you. It is of great help to the gentle souls who wish for good things but have difficulty making them happen. It brings with it the inspiration for increasing zest for living and the willingness to take risks inherent in all strong actions.
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.
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 bees wax to bring out it’s natural grain. The wax is from bees which have been rescued.
