Hoop & Frame Drums Made-to-Order


Our hoop & frame drums are made from deer, elk, horse and buffalo, on hoops or frames of Deodar Cedar or Willow Oak. Sizes range from 12″ to 20″ (not all hides and hoops are available in all sizes). All our drums come with a soft elk suede handle.

These drums are handmade with loving intention at our location in Portland, Oregon. Both rims are 3″ deep.

All drums are made with 16 holes and a four directions handle. We recommend either the hard beater or the soft beater for these drums. These types of beaters create different vibrations — the hard beater gives you a sharper and more solid “hit”, while the soft beater gives you a smoother sound. The drums shown are for illustration only, each drum is different and has its own personality, appearance and song. If you like, give us a call at 877-34 DRUMS and we will be happy to play them for you so that you can choose the perfect sound for you.

If you are planning to use your drum in extreme conditions, such as sweat lodges or in an environment that is very hot, cold, wet or dry, the smaller drums with the thicker hides will hold their tone the best (Of course, all drums are affected by their surroundings just as we are; check out the link: Caring For Your Drum as we are not responsible for negligence).
