Product Description

This is a premium quality Native American hand drum created by world renowned Navajo drum maker Paul Tohlakai using natural bull elk rawhide. Paul crafted this beautiful hand drum in his signature style that includes an intricate hide cutting pattern and lacing on the back.

The rawhide drum head is laced and gathered in such a way that it produces a superior quality look and sound, it is very well made. A aspect of his signature style featured on this one sided drum is a genuine antler handle that provides better freedom and control of the drum as well as unique beauty. It is very well made and is a drum that is wonderful to both own and play. Each Tohlakai drum is individually hand-crafted. Through the years of drum making, he has developed a unique stretch and tie technique that displays a high level of craftsmanship and allows the drummer freedom of movement. Paul has been creating for over twenty years and his knowledge is seen in each drum.

Native Americans often decorate their drums and this elk hide drum affords the owner the opportunity to add their own personality. The rawhide can be painted with earthen dyes as well as modern artist oil or acrylic paints. A perfect canvas for art projects, you can also add beads, feathers or fur. A Tohlakai hand painted deer skin leather drum beater is included, drum measures 18" diameter.

Picture is representative, elk hide can be light or dark depending on the hide and drum beater colors vary.
