I have had my drum for nearly a year now and what an incredible companion it has been. No matter how much I have tried to break the thing, it keeps booming with the sound of a drum twice its size. It has only gotten better with time. Thank you for such an awesome drum!

The only instrument older than the drum is the human body. With the voice came rhythm and with rhythm came beating on legs, clapping hands, beating on chests, whatever one could find to hold a beat.
Then, one day, someone accidentally stretched a wet hide to dry over a hollow log and the drum was born.
They've been a part of our consciousness ever since - the elemental heartbeat of our Earth Mother.
The Different Drum's hand-built drums are the new generation of this ancient heartbeat - made with great pride and reverence. The hides have been taken with the utmost care, smudged and blessed before they've even been shipped to us. The soaking process uses herbs and essential oils for purification and thanks to the living beings that gave of themselves for these creations.
As this is an ongoing creative process, you'll find new - sometimes one-of-a-kind - drums at vritually every one of my "Road Shows". New woods, crystals, hides, styles, all are part of this process, so feel free to contact me, drop in, or check my calendar to see where I'll be next. Among the new toys to the Different Drum catalogue are a revamped Irish Style Bodhran. Also, "rope-tuned" Tabors are coming soon!
Whether for prayer, meditation, healing, performance or drumming with friends, you will find nothing feels quite like a handmade drum. No plastics, no synthetics, just the earth's bounty at your fingertips in a relationship that is unlike any other. Go natural!
Made with love, pride and a prayer...
