Each of our drums is individual and unique, and will sound slightly different. That is the reason for when you learn how to play drums you would need to learn how to play specific types. There are numerous factors that explain why the sound of each drum is different. Here is some information on the most important differences.

All Natural Rawhide

Each rawhide is all natural, and unique. In addition, there may be slight differences due to the type of Rawhide, Deer, Elk, Texas Steer or Buffalo.

The Size, Shape and Tension

The size and shape of a drum effects the sound of the drum dramatically. Large drums normally have a lower, deeper sound, and can be more loud. Smaller drums on the other hand normally resonate at a higher tone. This sound range is not soled dependent on size, but is greatly affected however by the drum tension. Drum Tension is the degree to which the drum skin has been stretched. Tighter skins, of course, result in a higher tone. There are numerous other factors that affect the selection of a drum.

Temperature and Humidity

The sound of a native american drum varies considerably with temperature and humidity, often making the drum sound wonderfully resonant one day, and less the next. This is caused by a differences in the temperature and humidity which affect the natural rawhide drum skin, since the skin contracts more in hot dry climates.

We therefore will string the drum a little looser for a hot dry climate, and more tightly for a wet climate like Seattle. Therefore, please consider making a note about your climate when you order a native american drum.

You can learn ways to adjust the sound by Tuning the Drum.
