marching drums

classic drum for parade, small drums also for children

marching drums

Known from many pictures from the Landsknecht time, marching drums are still often used in historical parades.

A tall cylinder that is covered with fur on both sides. the skins are stretched against each other via leather straps.

As a rule, only one head is played with mallets. The lower head serves as a resonance head. Sometimes a string is stretched over the resonance head, which works as a snare and thus changes the sound.
The marching drum is played with two wooden mallets, sometimes with felt mallets if a softer sound is desired.

Lighter models of the marching drum can easily be carried over the shoulder with a simple strap. Heavy drums made of solid wood like the Landsknecht drums need a sturdy shoulder strap if you want to carry them for a long time.

It is early to practice what will later become a good drummer. The small children's drums can be worn around the neck and played with 2 mallets. Suitable for children from 3 years.

soldier drum

We build our drums solely from natural solid woods and cow or goat skins.
Single pieces of wood are glued together to form a round body, which is then covered on each end with skin.
The skin, either freshly raw or dried and re-soaked, is stretched between an iron ring and a wooden ring. The skins, one on each end of the drum body, are then stretched towards one another and thonged togehter. The tension can be adjusted either by mears of small leather straps or wooden pegs.

If you want to see more details look to our workshop.

The wooden drums produce a warm, soft tone. The thickness of the drum skins determines the sound, which can vary from a sharp infiltrating tone to a deeply vibrating one.
Each drum comes complete with 2 hand-turned drumsticks. Some drums can be played by hand.
We recommend that you use linseedoil to take care of your drum. The drum skins can be kept soft and supple by rubbing them with talcum powder from time to time.

The Bawu is a traditional chinese wind-instrument

This instrument is mad efrom bamboo, the sound comes from a metal tongue. This metal tongue is like the mtongues of a mouthharp. The sound is soft humming. The notes and melodies are played by six finger holes.

To play the Bawu you keep it like a travers flute. Simple you just blow through the metal tongue. The oral cavity should be like a air-chamber, and blow even and medium strong. The technic is similar to the Hulusi . So what at the Hulusi is the gourd, here it is your mouth.

At chinese wind-instruments the tonality is signed at the third hole. That means a flute in chinese F has the deepest note C, so it plays in C-major.

We offer the Bawu in two tonalities:

  • chinese G (sol), deepest note D (d-major/e-minor)
  • chinese F(fa), deepest note C (c-major/d-minor)

The Bawu has two parts and the head is designed with chinese poems.

To the Bawu belongs a chinese luck-knot and a hardcase.

An ritual instrument at different indigen cultur. Exspecially in sout pacific area it is usual.

At first it was a hollow log,  here it is a wooden box, with sawed tongues in the top.

The different length of the tongues makes 6 different notes in pentatonic tuning. So you can play free and easy and the sound is always harmonic.

The sound is very earthy, origen, shamanic. A modern instrument in this style is the Hapi-drum, a tongue-drum made from a metal resonance-box.
