  • lol...the head of my beater!

    So spill your gutts (and no, not your nutts)....what do you guys use for the interior of your drum stick heads?

    To get a true picture of your purpose in life, you only get the whole picture when you listen with your mind, your ears and your heart. This way The Creator has a direct connection with you and only you...no outside interference.

    When you follow the will of IT that created you, understanding that your purpose is not for you...but for IT and all that IT has created, there can be no wrong except failure to be obedient. Only then do we jeopardize the gifts we are given.

    Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!

            I use cattail fluff after the pods start to break up, this I put inside of a layer of soft buckskin and it has always worked well for me. Oh and inside of the fluff, I put a small piece of cloth with a pinch of tobacco, sage, cedar and sweet grass. This is hidden fom sight and is my personal medicine for my beater!

            I refuse to buy somone elses made beater!

                  The only reason I make my beater that way is that I figure that playing the drum is a gift, so why not give your beater that extra blessing. It makes my heart soar when I play and Iput more into the music since I did that extra step. I can only thank my Elder for showing me the way to add my herb mix inside. You might say I am overdoing it but on the other hand do you not want to put all the effort into the beater, not just a cheap look???

                            That spongy carpet insulation works well too.
