Shaman drum - 24" (60cm) diameter - painted

This is a large hand-made shaman-style (flat) drum, complete with a leather covered beater. A lovely large drum for young children to get their hands on, this beautiful drum is very light and easy to carry. It has a staggeringly impressive deep, resonant tone. You can feel as well as hear at a distance!

This is a robust drum and with its large playing surface, two or three children can use this together.

This one is 60cm diameter with a long stick. The Shaman Drum comes in five sizes of which this is the second biggest. This one is painted with cryptic black animals which the children love to identify and talk about.

We have included the 40cm painted version of this drum in our Nursery Rhythm Kit.

 

N.B. For SEN settings - please put a note with your order to indicate that it's needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.

More about the Shaman drum - 24" (60cm) diameter - painted

The normal way of playing this drum by yourself is to hold the drum sideways by the back 'strings' and hit it from the side with the beater. This is similar to how you would hold a bodhran (Irish flat-drum). This 60cm drum might be too heavy for very young children to play this way so you can also lay the drum flat on the floor and play it from above in which case it would be good to have two soft beaters to play it.

This is the way a few children can share the drum as well.
