Each drum is made in prayerful intentional in consideration of the medicine of the hide. He handcrafts these beautiful, shamanic/medicine drums to withstand the rigors of long and intentional use. They are laced very tight, and are full wrapped which allows them to be played in a greater range of environmental conditions without going flat or cracking from dryness. These drums by far hold their tone longer in humid conditions than any other drums we have played, and are truly made to last.
