American Deer Rawhide Spirit Drum on Deodar Cedar Hoop

Starting at: $170.00

The energy of the deer drum is all about love and circulation, both within the body and throughout the universe. It resonates in the mid range at the level of the heart chakra. Because deer are found on all continents, they have been an important food source to all people. Their gentleness, beauty and shy nature bring to mind the nature of love itself. When I work with deer, I feel the energy of a young and innocent maiden who is just setting out on her life journey.

American Deer drums tend to be cream colored. The hide tends to be thicker around the hind quarters and thinner around the belly and forequarters. The hide is very pliable and stretchy and requires a great deal of gentleness when drum making. Deer is highly resonant.

These hides come from hunters. These drums cannot be exported without a special license and a veterinary certificate. If you wish one exported to your country, you will have to pay the associated fees, currently around $90.00. Please contact me.

Deodar Cedar is a variety of cedar that is found naturally in India and the Middle East but has become common world wide. Like all cedars, it carries the energy of cleansing and protection. Cedars have been used worldwide for everything from making temple doors to weaving clothing, The name Deodar translates in Sanskrit to "God's Tree" and it is revered on the Indian subcontinent as a particularly divine tree and is sacred to Shiva. Ancient sages lived in Deodar forests. It is the national tree of Pakistan. The hoops are made of a single piece of wood, steamed and wrapped, and are strong and light-weight. They are approximately 2 1/2" deep.

These drums come with a beater. The soft beater is recommended for these drums.
