  • Making Drums out of Plastic???

    I saw a drum on saturday made of a thick piece of sewer pipe. It was covered over with suede buckskin and painted but when you look at it from below you see the black abs.
    What do you think should this be the next faze?
    I hope not the frame of my drum is hand hewn ash!
    I spent weeks getting the frame just right. I put love and care into making it.
    Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

    It is the year of the bear, I am sharpening my claws and will no longer tollerate harrassment.

      Sorry no the guy actualy was using it for healing ceremonies at a gathering! I wouldn't use it there, seeing it isn't traditional.

            Have to admit that I have also seen such drums. Can't say that i would ever make such a drum since i prefer making drums the traditional way.

              I've often kind of wondered about the use of modern bass drums, too. Saw a few of them around.

                That is absolutely INSANE and totally disrespectful. Mine is made from Oak (talk bout difficult to cut through the log) with raw hide top and bottom.

                Not only could I not even dream of makin one out of plastic but I have lots of cherokee that would have my behind if I did.

                let me resecend that statement. There would really only be one reason I'd make it out of plastic. If I was makin my 2 boy's one to play with. even then, I'd do my darnedest to make it out of wood.

                  Caring for Drum Heads
                  by hobbs49
                  This may seem like an offbeat question, but here goes. I was noticing the other day while sitting in with some guys singing that the drum head had a couple of areas where the hide (buffalo I think) was looking like it had some spidery surface cracks. When I ran my hand over it, I could feel some of...

                  Does anyone know someone who knows how to make an ojibwe-style drum stick? It's the kind that look like a lacross stick, with a hoop at the end with webbing inside the hoop?

                  What kind of hides do you have on your drum(animals) or what kind do you like to use? Do you like to have paint on your drum? Metal rings or wood? What do you think makes a drum sound good?

                  by SouthernDrumSinger
                  If you look at a lot of the southern drums, they have some type of colorful strip around the rim of the drum. Can you tell me what this is and what its purpose is...I would imagine it is to add additional protection to the hide from wear and tear from the drum sticks...but does anybody know what it...

                  by WhoMe

                  How many of you have seen the center drum get money from a blanket dance, honor songs, giveaways and the head singer pockets it all?

                  How do you feel and what do you do?

                  Several head singers have gained a bad reputation for constantly doing...
