Native American Indian Drums – Care for natural hide drums
Rawhide Indian drums are very durable and can be played for extended periods of time. The only concern for Indian hand drums made of rawhide it that they not get wet. Native rawhide drums actually use stretched skin and do well in conditions that our own skin likes. This is true for any shaman drum, hoop drum or frame drum as they are called that is made with untanned rawhide. Some modern hand drums made with non-natural materials have different properties.
