My wife has several Coast Salish hand drums. They are all round. Is the 7-sided one a traditional shape for your people ?

Very neat

These are very popular in the UK

Our drums were traditionally made from skulls

for the small ones. :)

Love these! They are great!! Hope to get some made to go along with my flutes I make. What are your drum heads made of? Where did you find them? Can you please tell us more? Is it real sinew holding the head on? How did you make the round hoop? Thanks! Great job, keep them coming!
