Genuine Rawhide Drums & the Effects of Weather & Humidity
DISCLAIMER Please Note:
All of my items are handmade & many of them are truly one of a kind which means that no two are exactly alike.
Because each one of my items are handcrafted one at a time, no two are 100% identical. I consider my items as art forms made in the centuries old ways which means there may be natural variations that one might consider a flaw but are actually inherent in the making of the piece, just as they were centuries ago. My items are created exactly as they were centuries ago. We might look at a piece from centuries ago may it be a drum, war club, knife, pipe, necklace, etc & think it's not perfect but actually it is, it's the hand crafted nature & techniques that the Native Americans used & which I use today with pride, skill & confidence.
When they are first made, handmade rawhide drums are tied tightly; however, this will vary from one maker to the next. Tightness depends a great deal on the relative humidity and the temperature as well as the thickness of the hide. While a rawhide drum might be very tight in one area of the country, it could be less tight and even sound flat if the humidity is high in another part of the country. If the humidity is particularly high and the drum is outside, a normally nice sounding drum can sound rather flat.
When singers are at an outdoor powwow and have a supper break or similar period of not singing, they will quite often cover the drum with a blanket to help keep it warm. If the sun is still up, they often stand the drum on its side in the sun to help keep it tight and have at times been known to use a hair dryer to help warm it up. The Osage Tribe has a special position in their Ilonshka Dance that is known as "Drum Warmer". This is normally filled by two fellows who warm the drum before the dance in order to keep it at the right tightness, depending on the weather at the time.

The drums craftsmanship is ok but the sound of the drum is not as expected … it sound very flat for 500$ I was expecting a better sound … now I did per chase this item for the sweat lodge and have yet to hear it exposed to the humidity which could drastically change its sound but as I said for 500$ I expected a more pleasing sound
