All of our pow-wow drums are hand built in Charlotte, North Carolina and constructed of top quality wood frames. We opt for a traditional Eastern Red Cedar, Douglass Fur, or a durable Hard Maple frame. Douglass Fur is an excellent choice for larger Ceremonial Drums as it has lower density that enhance low end frequencies, as well as structural stability.

Eastern Cedar is traditionally used and is also a softer wood so it will resonate with the lower tones, and absorb some of the higher frequencies, giving a pure, deep bass.

Hard Maple is more structurally sound, but very dense. The density gives the drum more attack and a harder projection, but not quite as mellow sounding.It's all custom, so write us and we can discuss options in detail to build the custom drum just for you!

Our PowWow drums can shake a room! They come in a few sizes that we have found gives good results, but most of our orders are for custom sizes. The largest we have built to date was a huge 40 by 18 inch Ceremonial PowWow Drum.

There are two main building styles RHD uses to construct these drums. The traditional style uses rawhide lace to tune the drum; where the more modern design uses rope. The advantage of rope is that the drum is easily tuned and can compensate for changes in humidity that effect the sound. Rawhide stretches with humidity, and having a hide and lacing stretch and retract means that your drum will sound very different depending on where you are playing. Coming from a more percussive background, I prefer rope. Knowing that many prefer hide lacing I offer this as a more traditional style and actually enjoy heading these powwow drums with rawhide lace because it contracts when it drys, cutting out a lot of my work!

Either way you want to go, contact Rhythm House Drums about your PowWow drum purchase, as we have some great prices, and even better drums!
