Eagle Hopi Handpainted 14 " Frame Drum
This 14" Vegan Remo frame drum can be played in all weather without the sound being affected, unlike animal skin drums ,which go slack and flat cold atmopsheres.The fibreskin produces a consistent and beautiful sound
I first visited the Hopi Indian mesas in northern Arizona when I was 16 yrs old.It had a profound effect on me and I was reminded of this recently, when impulsed to paint an Eagle frame drum . Ancient rememberings !
The frame drum is played by hand and connects you into the rhythm of your Heart and Soul. The drum can be hung on your wall as a piece of Artwork and also used as a Crystal Grid when working with Earth Energy. Each drum is unique.
Frame drums are played by hand and have a thinner frame, usually played while sitting, placing the notch on the frame on your knee or holding in two hands away from the body. You can find different sounds using your fingers around the rim of the drum or using the palm of your hand in the centre of the drum. Frame and Buffalo drum are vegan ie. fibreskin not animal and therefore retain their beautiful resonance in all weathers. Animal skin drums can be affected by temperature and lose their resonance if exposed to the cold. If you are wanting to play your drum outdoors, I recommend the fibreskin drum as you will always find a powerful, sweet sound. It's a good idea to protect your drum against the elements with a soft cover.
