Lots of NEWS from Thunder Valley Drums, soon to become Shaman Drums And More!
I have decided to consolidate many disparate parts of Thunder Valley Drums into one place. Presently there's the TVD Website (which is called naturalshamandrums.com), the blog (now known as Thunder Valley Drums), and a podcast (that disappeared when a certain Web host-- to remain nameless-- shut down podcast options with little notice), all scattered here and yon. So I'm hoping all will eventually be brought into one beautiful circle, right here.
It's a big job.
But I can't talk about big without mentioning the newest drum I'm about to offer...the biggest drum I've ever made. The "Buffalo Spirit" drum is more than SIX FEET in circumference! And it's made from a cross-cut (what woodworkers call a "cookie", and this some hummer of a cookie!) of a tree felled by natural causes. Once the center was cut out of this once solid maple cookie, its frame ended up being about two inches thick, and five inches in height. And still it's about a 20-plus pound cookie!
