Our Kits

Cedar Mountain Drums is a community of men and women dedicated to manifest services and products for healing our sense of separation. Each item we create is done with prayer and loving intention. Since we use primarily deer, elk, moose buffalo and horse rawhide for our drums, some information about the hides is helpful.
 

Click here to learn about the energetic properties of the Animals and Trees used in our drumsWe purchase “green hides” and finished rawhide from individuals and tanneries, and each hide is “fleshed” by the hunters that provide the skins. Many times their hides are inconsistent in thickness. We give our attention to making our drums and attempt to use the thickest parts of each hide, but with an intention to steward and use these gifts from the animal people, we use prudence and try to get as much out of each hide as possible, and therefore create as little waste as we can. 

Each kit you purchase is complete with everything you need for creating your drum, rattle or beater.  We hand cut each head, lacing, rattle head and beater head.  We wrote our instructional manuals and illustrated each step of the process of creating your drum, rattle or beater.  At Cedar Mountain our goal is sustainability, respect and functional community.  We inspect each others' creations to maintain the excellent quality that our company has been know for.

Our Drum Kits

 

The hands and the heart are intimately connected. When I made my first drum, after working in my head for many years, my heart awoke and led to the creation of Cedar Mountain Drums in 1989. Creating a drum can be a magical experience – putting your prayer and energy into the drum and learning the things you can change…and the things you have to release to spirit. Making your own Native American style rawhide hoop drum or shaman’s rattle is a wonderful way to create a personalized tool for healing and ceremony.  To this end, we offer kits containing everything you need to create your own instrument. Drum kits come with your choice of a pre-cut deer, elk, horse, moose or buffalo rawhide drum head and hand cut rawhide lacing. The drum hoop or frame can be yellow cedar, red cedar, willow oak or maple. Also included are the makings of a soft drum beater and instructions. Many blocks will come up – perfectionism, doubt, fear and once you go through these, a renewal takes place that you could have never imagined. The magical act of creating the drum bonds you with this “medicine” and you learn to work with the drum as it teaches the ever-changing laws of nature.

 

We cut each drum head and lacing from the same animal rawhide after smudging, praying and staying in the heart space. Each kit comes complete with a hoop and pre-cut rawhide head & lacing of your choice, a beater kit and illustrated step-by-step instructions.
