Two New Pots of Gold for Rainbow Drum Lineup

If you’ve been searching for a reliable, lightweight and colorful shamanic drum for your drum circle or for use in sacred ceremony, you may have just found your pot of gold at the end of the drumming rainbow right here! I’ll let Mary Marvel explain. (Then you can scroll on down to see TWO new Rainbow Drums below.)

Find your own pot of spiritual gold at the end of a Rainbow Drum from Thunder Valley Drums.
There is more than gold at the end of the rainbow! There’s red, green, blue and lilac drums there, too. And even some brass!

For the first time ever, I’ve used metal as an integral component of a drum, and I guess you could say it’s time to get down to brass tacks about it! Enter the Jade Green Drum…

Jade Green Rainbow Drum
Each Rainbow Drum is different, though this photo gives a good idea of what yours will resemble.

You not only get the gold, but the entire rainbow with this drum!

The Jade Green Rainbow Drum features a deep green drum head and all the colors of the rainbow on the frame and trim. The
colorful composite webbing is tacked on with brass tacks, then accented with sumptuous suede deer lacing and colorful, hand-painted and polished wooden beads.

Such a lively voice! But of course you would expect no less from a Thunder Valley Drum!

All of TVD’s shamanic Rainbow Drums are 10 inch drums, very lightweight so you can play them for a long time without tiring, and easy to transport in a backpack, suitcase or even a large purse. There is also a lightning-struck wooden charm tied to each drum. Each also is accompanied by sacred herbs and sweetgrass that you can use in a smudging ceremony for your new drum.

Blue Rainbow Drum from Thunder Valley Drums
The Blue Rainbow Drum from Thunder Valley Drums seeks a balance of texture, color and spiritual expression.

Now for the second new drum— a personal favorite— the Blue Rainbow Drum. Oh! I love this drum, too!

Right off, this shamanic drum aspires to a strong expression of balance, at least as many people interpret colors and textures. Blue is a traditional color of masculinity, while the pretty and soft crochet tiara is of a definitive feminine texture.

There are strands of suede deer lacing and hand-painted, polished wooden beads, too, repeating the female/male theme. (The photo fails to show the true richness of the actual blue color of the drum head.) It has the lightning-struck wooden talisman on the bottom, too, even though it wasn’t present when I photographed the drum.

You can see more, read more and even hear more about these shamanic drums on the main Thunder Valley Drums site. How about buying one today? I can make it for you and have it on your doorstep in 10 days or so (for the typical U.S. address). I would LOVE to make one of these drums for you!

Aho & Namaste,
