Medieval Drum, 13
Click to enlarge

This cylindrical drum has two heads, one with a snare. When the drum head is struck with the drum sticks, the snare adds a vibration, or rattle, to the drum's din. The Medieval style drums are made with two, rope tuned, skin heads that are rolled and stitched with the snare on the top head.

This style of drum is a traditional military drum with a long history. As a military instrument this drum was often used in combination with a wooden or metal pipe. Both instruments were played by one individual, like a one-man-band. The 3-hole pipe was held and played with one hand, while the other hand held the drum stick and played the tabor which hung from the wrist, shoulder, or arm.

This medieval drum is fashioned from half-inch laminates for strength and light-weight. Each drum comes with 2 drum sticks. There are brass hooks to help suspend the drum from your belt or strap while playing.
