  • Who Makes The Best Drums In Indian Country

    I was just wondering who you think makes the best drums out there. The drum is indeed important to the pow-wow. But they dont all sound the same. A good sounding drum is soooo hard to find. So who do you think makes the best sounding drums?

        William James is from a rez in Alberta. He has made drums for a lot of the big name drums all over powwow country.


        He also travels all over including the states to make drums for different people.

        AKA as "Big Bill"........:)

                Frank Hostler is the best in the Northwest. Not only a work of art, but the sound is the best also!

                              re: best drums

                              i think the ones made by the drum groups themselves are the best ones.
