|RED EAGLE DRUMS are made from skins of deer, horse, elk, moose, buffalo, bear, and cow. Deer skin drums are lightweight and have a higher pitch. Horse skin drums are unique in color, lightweight, and have a deeper voice. Elk skin also produces a fine tone and is lighter weight. Buffalo skin has the lowest tone. Moose hide drums, although not as heavy as buffalo, also have a deep voice. Bear skin is thin and lightweight and produces a deep voice. Cow skin is transparent, most durable and easiest to paint.
Our drums are easy to play and have a laced-rawhide handle, woven in four directions, for a comfortable grip.
Drum sizes range from 10 inches to 20 inches. The larger the drum, the deeper the tone.
