Medicine Drums

Drums have been considered the heartbeat of the earth and the cosmos. Their sound has accompanied us on this earth for thousands of years.

Each drum is carefully handmade, with respect for the natural resources and materials. My frame drums are light in weight, individually dyed and delicately painted. The result is an authentic instrument that offers blessings and knowledge. Every drum sounds different and has a specific unique presence and quality. 

My drums have rich, vibrant and clear voices with wide overtones. Their strong echoing sound goes through the entire body and vibrates in a similar way to a gong. It is known to impact and change the state of consciousness and quickly lead into a meditative state. 


Your custom made drum reflects you and your spiritual identity. It may become your close ally, a friend to accompany you on your journey for many years to come. As we go into the creative process we set up the ideal colors, shapes, symbols and visual elements that are meaningful and important to you. These will be represented on your drum.

I use local Ash wood, Birch or Swiss Pine for the frames. Available sizes are 35cm, 40cm, 45cm or 50cm, depending on your preference. The hide can be made of goat, deer, calf, horse, buffalo or chamois.

Almost every rawhide can be painted or dyed.  Contact me if you wish to order a drum and need consultation to find the right piece for you. Your drum can be shipped worldwide.


Many of the drums I craft are custom made. You can also send me images of symbols, ornaments or colors you love to have on your drum.

You can purchase directly from me or place your order in the Etsy online shop. If you need a consultation let me know and I am happy to find the perfect drum for you. Whether you want a customized design or order one of my designs. I contact you when your drum is ready for shipping.

Frames can be custom made. You can order your drum in 35cm, 40cm, 45cm or 50cm. Do write me if you have any questions or want a different size. Most frames are made of Ash wood as it is very light but solid.

You can order your drum in goat hide, horse, calf, deer, buffalo or chamois. I work with a natural premium rawhide for the highest quality of handmade production. Each skin has been carefully cleaned, evenly smoothed and attentively processed.

Here you can find some sound samples – PLEASE LISTEN WITH HEADPHONES to be able to catch the overtones and the depth of the sounds:

It usually takes is about 3-4 weeks after payment. Do write me when you need your drum for a specific date and we can try to find a solution.

The drum stick is not included but can ordered additionally; it will match the size of your drum and tension of your rawhide.

Yes, you can. I send each package insured with DHL. Once the drum is on the way you will receive a notification with the tracking number. Please note that when you order outside of the EU there may be an additional customs fee.
