Drum Care and Maintenance
Wisdom Hand Drums
Sacred art is water for a parched soul....
But sacred art can also become parched!!!
Regularly rub your hand gently on the entire surface of your drum. This not only adds your natural oils into the skin of the drum it also helps your spirit bond with the spirit of your drum.
I would like to draw your attention to wintertime
drum maintenance. For those living in cold climates
and heated houses please remember to store your drum in a cool area. Keep it
away from any and all heat sources.
Gas and/or wood stoves.....
Keep them out of direct sunlight...
DO NOT even keep your drum in the same room with a wood stove.... It sucks the life out of it.
It will dry out either ripping the hide or crushing the frame.
If your drum becomes dangerously dry or the sound is
Give your drum a drink....
Feed it some water....
Gently spray it front or backside rubbing it in gently with your hand.
Those in hot humid climates......
When your drum begins to loose its beautiful voice it may be time for a tuning.
Tuning can be done by doing all of the opposites listed above. Place it for a SHORT time near a heat source or wrapped in a heating blanket.
Tuning your drum:
If your drum becomes out of tune it may be time for tightening.
Using twine, leather strips or sinuw.... Wrap and tie the back strings together in groups of two until the drum regains its natural voice again....
Note: Do not undo the lacing unless you are an experienced drum maker
Blessings and happy drumming
