Drum Taos Style Blue and Yellow
You will get a unique sound with this double-headed Taos style Blue and Yellow Drum! The craftsman used cottonwood for the frame and bound rawhide rounds at either end with rawhide lace. The lacing is knotted in several places and a handle was added for convenience. They painted the frame yellow and blue, and the rawhide black. Dated circa 1900’s – 1920’s.
This Drum stands 10 1/4″ tall with a 8″ diameter head. Play by hand or choose from our selection of beaters (sold separately)!
