Greetings:

I'm searching for a period correct drum for a color guard. New or used. I didnt see any threads in this section in regards to obtaining drums.

Any assistance would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

I make and occasionally sell drums. You can see some of the drums I have made at

drumandfife.blogspot.com

All the drums on the blog were made with 1/8" solid ash or maple steam-bent into a circle, the same method used 150 years ago. The hoops are also steam-bent ash, oak, or maple. Tack designs are copied from original drums in my collection or original drums I have measured.

Calf or goat skin heads are standard.

Price is $750 for a drum with a 16" x 12" shell.
