Sami style Horse drum
This is a large 24" Sami style Drum made using horse hide.
The inner lacings are bear and the mallet has deer leather on both the handle and the top.
The drum is quite heavy, but also carries a deep resonance that is incredible to hear!
Like all drums this one will be affected by moisture content in the air and because of its size may require a little care when using it, which just means not leaving it outside for long periods and if you notice a little change in the smoothness of the hide you can tighten it easily by either using a blowdryer on a med ht setting and blowing it into the back of the drum, or even using a heating pad will help remove the moisture and tighten it back up.
