soldier-drums

 

We build our drums solely from natural solid woods and cow or goat skins.
Single pieces of wood are glued together to form a round body, which is then covered on each end with skin.
The skin, either freshly raw or dried and re-soaked, is stretched between an iron ring and a wooden ring. The skins, one on each end of the drum body, are then stretched towards one another and thonged togehter. The tension can be adjusted either by mears of small leather straps or wooden pegs.

soldier drum in Ash
The wooden drums produce a warm, soft tone. The thickness of the drum skins determines the sound, which can vary from a sharp infiltrating tone to a deeply vibrating one.
Each drum comes complete with 2 hand-turned drumsticks. Some drums can be played by hand.
We recommend that you use linseedoil to take care of your drum. The drum skins can be kept soft and supple by rubbing them with talcum powder from time to time.
