Our Fa’akete are made from 10″ diameter wood shells, and are 13 3/4″ tall. We attach rubber stoppers on the bottom to protect the drum, and keep it from sliding when playing. We use goat skin for these drums that provide a bright high short resonating tone that can be adjusted. You can customize your order by choosing your own colored pattern/fabric.
We also offer personalized wood burning for you or your groups name. (add $45)
Drum is functional and is performance ready. Humidity and temperature do have varying effects on the tension, pitch and wood expansion/contraction. (Drum sticks not included)
Approximate dimensions: 10″Diameter x 13 3/4″Height
