  • Painted Drums

    Sorry for hogging up this board today.

    For those of you in drum groups, are any of your drums painted with something on them? If so, why or why not?

    no my drum group does not have painted drums,and im not sure if theres any more meaning behind it than this,but i have been told be several drum makers not to do it simply because it will dull the sound of the drum so thats why i dont do it

        I have numerous photos of old drum painted half blue and half red with a small yellow stripe down the center. Some of the drums have even got a "skirt" thing going around the drum hanging down. Does any body out there have in info on those type drums?

                Really? Phrenology...that explains a lot.

                For more on the red and blue painted drums check out Thos. Venum book, "The Chippewa Dance Drum"

                          What is everyone's opinion of drum hoppers? I don't like it when they just set in without asking or join in right in the middle of a song. I won't tolerate this with my new drum group. If someone wants to sing with us, I expect them to ask no matter who they are. Don't just come in the middle of...

                          As Natives, we pay great respect to the drum. In my tribe, I was taught to respect the drum, "take care of it and it will take care of you." Following this advice, the drum has taken me to many different lands in North America and throughout the world.

                          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.
