Shaman Drums

What are shaman drums?

Shaman drums are drums with a cross handle at the back and they produce a warm deep bass sound. They are played with a mallet and no musical knowledge is needed to play them. 95% of people who get in touch with me want a shaman drum for the easy of playing.

Frame Drums

What are frame drums?

They are drums without a cross handle and are not played with a mallet, but with the hands. They require more of a technique to learn how to play different strokes. You can still play them with a mallet, just they will not sound as deep as a shaman drum.

As you see in the pictures, they have a wood optic finish around the side which gives it an elegant look. The depth is not quite as high as with a shaman drum, so it creates more overtones.
