We’ve taken our professional level drum and elevated it with with a work-of-art carving. While it takes days and several carvers to get each of the roaming elephants just right, this drum is meant to be played!
The shell is carved from a solid piece of sustainably harvested mahogany hardwood that has a natural warm tone. Mahogany is also used on instruments like guitars and pianos for this very reason.
Before applying the head and rope, master carvers sit and create the story of the elephant’s journey. The drum is passed around to other carvers who specialize in specific carving areas. Some of them work on just landscape carvings while others have perfected the art of creating faces. Since each of these are hand carved, no two drums will be exactly the same. No mass production here!
The drum head is using our highest quality goatskin. These heads show their natural colorings and are thick so they can be tuned tight.
