Taos Drums Main Page


Every drum is crafted from natural materials and renewable resources over a year-long process.  Drum frames are created from wood native to Northern New Mexico - cottonwood, aspen or pine.  Drum heads are made from cow, deer, elk or goat hides.  The hide is hand-scalloped, stretched and secured with rawhide lacing to the frame.  each completed drum has its own distinct sound.  The type of wood, the depth and diameter of the frame, the thickness of the walls, temperature and humidity-all affect the tone.  Taos has gained international recognition as the caretakers of the Original Taos Drum.  Stampede Trading Co. is proud to offer the quality and tradition of the Taos Drum.  Although, Anglo, Hispanic and Native American craftsmen participate in the making of the drums presented below - they are not American Indian made or an American Indian product under under 25 U.S.C. sec. 305, et seq. - are not presented as such and will not be shipped with Certificates of Authenticity.
