A tall cylinder that is covered with fur on both sides. the skins are stretched against each other via leather straps.
As a rule, only one head is played with mallets. The lower head serves as a resonance head. Sometimes a string is stretched over the resonance head, which works as a snare and thus changes the sound.
The marching drum is played with two wooden mallets, sometimes with felt mallets if a softer sound is desired.
Lighter models of the marching drum can easily be carried over the shoulder with a simple strap. Heavy drums made of solid wood like the Landsknecht drums need a sturdy shoulder strap if you want to carry them for a long time.

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.

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.
