    Make your own Harmonic Shamanic Drum and drum beater!  The Harmonic Shamanic drum has 15 lacings creating a five spoke handle. This arrangement represents the four elements + spirit (among many other things). It was created to give pagan people a drum with their own magic and symbolism. It is also more comfortable to hold and, because of the odd number of lacings, it is very balanced and creates harmonic over and undertones along with a very nice voice. This is extremely distinct with horse drums, which can create celestial vibrations, but carries through whatever hide is used.


    The workshop comes with everything you need to make your chosen drum and a drum beater. A soft suede handle wrap with instructions is available to take home and apply when the drum is dry. Hides available are red stag deer (hart), horse, elk, buffalo or moose. All drums will be made on cedar hoops.
