I'm new to drumming and currently only have Synthetic Drums(Remo "Buffalo" Drums) I have a 10" and a 22" Hand Drum, the 10" is a toy but the 22" doesn't sound too bad. I use them at a local Drum Circle in Brooklyn NY at Devi(know no local Drummers of NDN descent) and of course at home practicing the Iroquois Social Dance songs folks have been TRYING to teach me of late ;-) My Daughters get a big blast out of them , not sure how much my neighbors like it tho as I blast away and sing!

I'm a LOUSY singer ;-)
one of these days I'll get around to making an 8 sided Hand drum from pine and hide. I finally got around to making a beater. Found a nice 1" diameter or so piece of deadfall in the local Park, cleaned it up and wrapped the head with some nice Tobacco colored Deerhide. Mellowed the "Buffalo" drums sound nicely. Should make a Hide covered drum sound good methinks.

Nia:wen thanx for listening to my ramblings ;-)
onen ki wahi bye for now
