Shamanic Drums for Sale
with handmade woodenpegs
The work with the Shaman Drum: The very substance in shamanism is that all life is connected and that everything has a soul. That goes for the Shaman Drum as well. Therefore a good beginning will be getting to know the Drum. The coalition with the Shaman Drum is based on respectful relationship: You start out by gently playing, listening and feeling your way to the knowledge of it's uniqueness. Thereby the relationship will expand until you play the Drum...and the Drum plays you!
The shaman drum is your tool “a gateway to an alter reality” A fine and unique tool that requires careful treatment. The Shaman Drum is also called “the shaman’s horse” as the shaman travels on it’s sound.
In some native American tribes it is said that the spirit of the Drum lives in the center of the Drum. Subsequently they never play directly in the middle. Also it is our experience that the riches tones are to be found between the center and the rim on the Drums we build! Our Shaman Drums are for the most part oval, – it is our experience that this particular shape enhances the powerful resonance and optimizes the harmonics. The suspended handle also serves to amplify “the Drums own song”. When you acquire a Shaman Drum, we recommend that you journey and ask for knowledge of the spirit, uniqueness, and energy of that particular Drum. Take your time getting to know your Shaman Drum.

Mails from our Customers
Beautiful shaman drum received!!
Wow! So incredible!! It’s first heartbeat was incredible to hear, so rich and lovely..
First blessings, then we played! It loves to sing and brings pure joy to my heart. There were very special signs that came through with its arrival. Thank you for birthing this beautiful creation of great power, happiness and healing.
Much love to you both,
🌈Gina, Santa Barbara, USA
The shaman drum just arrived and it’s in perfect condition. I am so happy to see it, it is so beautiful and special and really speaks to my heart 🧡
Dear Erik dear Susanne
Yesterday the parcel arrived including savely the Drum and the Stick. Here is a foto from this morning at dawn. The welcoming I did already last night with the lovely juniper you included. Thanks and thanks for the advices and attachments you sent me via email about „starting the beautiful relationship with a living shamanic tool“. Trying to tell it this way 😉
The drum is wow. It is resonating already by the lowest wind whispering and by the stick beat it‘s sound and reverb goes directly to the heart. The stick and the drum handle and everything fit magically. Just holding it makes me speak and choose words cautiously and in inspiration, for the drum, I feel, brings them in a very direct way to manifestation.
I feel happiness and gratefulness. This experience getting to wonderful tools made by your hands, Erik and Susanne, goes to my heart. Remembering finding your website, the kind communication you were willing to share and the moment I’m giving the rattle and the drum a respectful home makes me saying to both of you: thank you very much 🙂
I will keep this in my hear
And send you blessings
Rolf – Germany 🙂
Hello and Wow I received my Drum today I just tapped the handle and the drum started to resonate considering the cold it had to wether through its
journey the sound is Devine , once again this Drum was made for me the second I opened it we got to work it really gave me no choice !! Hahah The Capricorn
Thank you so so much . Always with Love Shelley – Ireland
Hi Erik and Susanne!
The shaman drums are home now and we are very, very happy to meet them!
We both feel attached to our drums immediately, Sandra does not want to let go of Spirit of the Bear and it is communicating with her already and I feel there are secrets to unveil with Spirit of Fairies.
Thank you for creating these for us!
Best wishes Johan and Sandra, Sweden
I received my shaman drum on Friday, and went to a mountain top in my favorite valley, Signaldalen.
I had the most amazing weekend, so much so that I decided to continue my solo journey farther North and continue exploring with my drum as my only companion
I read the stories of how you make your drums, and I knew this all along, that your drums were made ceremoniously and with great respect and through guidance by Spirit and with Spirit Animals. But I was happy to read that my senses were spot on, and also I so enjoyed the story of the 127 year old Elm tree. I wonder what peg in my drum, is she? 🙂
Having lived in Sápmi for the last year, I had thought about getting a Sámi drum, but in the end it did not feel right and as I shared with you before, the circular shape is in alignment with my lineage from home. All that to say I am so happy to have my drum and proud to know that it has been created in the right way— this is difficult to put to words, but (you know) the energy of it is powerful.
Honestly she’s so powerful her sound and medicine, I feel I have to learn from her and up my game so to speak as to know how to work with her. 🙂
All of this is fantastic!!
Thank you so much for the work you are doing in the world and I am so glad I found you and now have This shamanic drum with me.
(I also very much appreciate all of the supplementary information you provide about your drum and their creation, you are educating others in the substance of sacred objects and their essence.)
Many abundant blessings to you!!
In love and service, Chloë Rain, Norway
White Eagle has landedit’s like we always has been connected. Like meeting an old soul friend. And Eagle is a beautiful soul. I’m in love. And she sings with magic. Thank you very much for this shaman drum.
Love and light. You are the best
Erik and Susanne:
I recieved the shaman drum today. It is more beautiful than I imagined. It has a wonderful tone. This drum fits into and enhances the work I do.
Thank you for walking this path of beauty.
Cheryl, Colorado, USA
Dear Erik and Susanne,
Thank you for shipping my new shaman drum and i received it on Thursday May 21. The drum arrived in perfect condition.I want to thank you both for the shaman spirit work you put into crafting all you do, and in particular my drum. l called on – the spirits of the woods, Pine, Beech, Elm, and Birch. The Spirit of the Reindeer to thank them and to ask that they may work with me.
Thank you both and blessings. Harry, Gray Raven. Canada
Just to let you know that the ‘Winds of Aurora’ drum arrived safely today, and in perfect condition. It really is ‘the right’ shaman drum, so beautiful and it feels like a very significant moment that this has suddenly manifested in my life. I’ve moistened the hide a little bit as it is very hot here today, and the sound is – wow!!
I will be doing a special ceremony to begin this new time journeying together.
Thank you too for the juniper sticks – I know this wood well from my childhood, and the refreshing scent that came straight out of the box immediately brought me back to those sacred places walking in the Finnish forest.
With deepest thanks to you and Susanne for your beautiful making, and I will send you a picture of the drum here once we are ready.
Best wishes and blessings to you both,
Anneli, United Kingdom
My Shaman drum arrived yesterday beautifully intact. I initiated it with prayers and started playing it today. This is my very first drum and I have instantly fallen in love with it at first sight. Thank You for creating such a beautiful shamanic drum for me.
With gratitude, Vinutha, California, USA
Hello Susanne and Erik,
the shipment arrived yesterday. Everything is in order and prestine condition. I am so pleased, after all this time, to hold such Beautiful Shamanic creations in my Hands.
And the Arrival was perfect in time for the celebration and welcoming on a Portal Day. Thanks again for everything.
Be blessed, Klaas, Dortmund, Germany
They arrived this morning and are absolutely lovely! Thanks so much for holding on to them while I was away and for the lovely smudges!
The shaman rattle gave me tingles the first time I shook it and the shaman drum has had a little water added and it has a beautiful deep tone. It definitely feels that they have come home!
I did find one piece of tape and the handle feels comfortably firm so I guess you did remember to do the last tightening! Thanks!
Once again, thanks very much for everything!
All the best,Guy, Zandvoort, Netherlands
I´m very happy to tell you that the shaman drum has arrived today 🙂
Thank you for your great work and the lovely sound of the new family member 🙂
All the best
Erik & Susanne!
The Druid/ess has arrived and we have activated long dormant energies:) She sings with harmonics like I’ve never heard on a drum. Cosmic vibrations to awaken and attune. The color is “perfect”. We are complete in a new way.
I very much appreciated the secure box and quick, safe shipping process. Being very dry in Denver, I have been using the technique of wetting the fingers and rubbing the shaman drum head for a few minutes every day, it is necessary to return her from a high shallow tone to full depth and song.
Honestly I have been at a loss for words around the beauty and magic of this manifestation process. The construction of the drum and the sacred intention are one unit and you have created powerful healing tools:) Enjoying every moment together.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Courtney, DeepStates Soundscapes, Colorado, USA
Hey Erik and Susanne,
yesterday i received this amazing present from my amazing wife Thank you, Wopila, Pilamaye
Soul of Fire what an energy!
In the first moment the color “purple” was a bit strange to me. Cause i connect it more to woman.
But as soon as i played the first drumbeat, she touched me so deep and intense. I never get touched by another shaman drum like this.
She permeate every layer in surrounding, in a very powerful way. i felt a call and invitation to get into a deeper connection with her. to bring a new powerful energy into this world.
Her colourful red she glows into the darkness is also very stunning.
You are really blessed and do a great job, with great teachers. They are all inside and its amazing…..
Such a great energy and now i am blessed too
Love Benji, Wegberg, Germany
Dear Erik, dear Susanne,
your parcel arrived yesterday – so I did a welcome and vintersolhverv ceremony today with the lovely junipersmoke – thank you!
I am very thankful! Thank you for your work. Your work really is love made visible!
I am happy to have my shaman drum with me now, it is very beautiful, wonderful colours and I like the sound, the smell and the drumstick is perfect in my hand 🙂 And the size and weight is really comfortable for travelling round the world. Thank you so much!
Glædelig jul og godt nytår!
Blessings and Love, Ulrike, Bonn, Germany
Dear Susanne and Erik,
The Shaman Drum, The Spirit of the Wolf has arrived. Thank you very much.

With kind regards,
Margriet, Lochem, The Netherlands

Dear Erik and Susanne
Thank you so much for my lovely shaman drum. We are still getting to know each other, but already our bond is strong. The sound is beautiful – even with soft finger tapping. I love that you incorporated pins from the two special trees.
I introduced “Hunting Ritual” to my anam cara group (soul friends) this weekend. Everyone was so excited to meet her. We did a shamanic healing ceremony for a friend and everyone agreed it was our best drumming yet. The answers from Spirit were strong and wise. I wish I had words to say more. 💟
Alison, Bethlehem, USA

Thank you again for all your mails, info and kind advice and help !!
Interesting that my Drum Moon arrived on the Full Moon … I initiated it last night!
Sincerely, Martha – Luzern, Switzerland
I am Extremely pleased to tell you my shamanic drum arrived yesterday without a single problem! I took her home and hugged the box the entire way home on the bus .. arrived home and eagerly opened the Extreamly well packaged box . there was a nice strong supporting piece of wood there, and cardboard supports and an Amazingly lovely felt bag!
the sacred juniper was amazingly sweet and smokey when I burned a thick cloud in my small room. I welcomed and introduced my shaman drum and beater to my home. I could not imagine the beauty in person! the photos made me fall in love, but to see it in person and feel the smooth edged wooden parts and the soft wolf fur so carefully placed and the colours of the reindeer and the wolf fur matching so perfect, to smell it and to feel the energy and care , craftmanship , love and MAGICK .. WOW beyond my hopes and a true treasure !
I simply cannot thank you enough for the time and energy you spent to get this shamanic drum to me and for your help with the payment schedule too .
So anyway its a feeling like a have a small child or a new pet .. the spirit of this sacred drum is strong and is an amazing entity to work with. It truly does sound like a deep bell ringing when I beat the drumhead it resonates for a long long time ..
I see a small hole drilled at the end of the beater tick , what is this for ? to hang it up or add some string ?
Also just wondering if there is a way for me to know which of the pegs comes from the lighting tree ?
Many many thanks for EVERYTHING and I will be looking for a necklace soon 🙂

Dear Susanne & Erik
Every single moment with my Drum is a rich and beautiful experience, so unical!
A new Door has been opened in my conscioussness

Der Erik, dear Susanne,
My drum and rattles arrived well already on Wednesday evening, second day after shipping.
When I unpacked the carton, leaving everything in the beautiful violet bag, I had to take them into my arms as if I was holding myself. I was so touched that I began to cry. I could only feel the gratitude. I stroked the drum again and again, later I gave it massage from outside. It enjoyed :-). I left them relaxed that evening.
Yesterday I initiated my drum and rattles with juniper smudge. The getting to know is very intensive and emotional: the first contact with “the Spirits of the Mountains ” was very intense, the energy was so penetrating that I had the feeling it wants possess my whole attention, there would be no space for anything else. So I kept distance, had chat with it and observe, being deeply connected. Today it was beautiful to play with her.
Also the contact with the rattles is changing from yesterday to now. I think it takes some time to integrate them into my life and I am learning about them.
Thank you so much for your unbelievable beautiful art work: it can only be done with the higher spirits with you. I am so touched to see, to hear and to feel the drum. The sound is incredible. Also that of the rattles.
Everything is so well organized, even the perfect packing.
Thank you for the beauty and the energy you create.
Dear Erik and Susanne
I would like to thank you once again for the exquisite drum you crafted for me. Not only have you beautifully evoked energy of the spirit who will work through the drum, you have crafted a power object which will deepen my shamanic work. The drum sings with two voices; a deep thrumming echoing the heartbeat of the Earth, and a higher counterpoint which expresses the joy of creation and the wonderful dance of life and spirit. It is everything I hoped for and more. I am in deep gratitude for the integrity with which you work.
Sarah Louise Kent – UK.
Hello Erik and Susanne,
My mother is in town now and I finally have a minute to write my experience of Mourning Dove. I opened my drum outside of course and the first time I struck the surface I heard a familiar coo-ing sound that is not ever heard in our woods. I beat the drum again and let the sound fade out and again another coo. In the Shipibo tradition, when a baby is born, it is named by the first sound or sight that the grandma sees or hears. I knew my drum was to be give the name – “The coo of the Mourning Dove,” For short – Dove.
I am amazed at the craftsmanship and power in this drum. I had a bad migraine one day and I put my head directly in the crux of the handle and beat the surface for about 10 minutes or so directly over my head and my migraine vanished. MY husband and I both were very impressed with how well made the drum is, sturdy yet so light.
I am so glad that there is a connection to the music I will be performing (texts all from the Kalevala) and the drum (connection to the Sami people and lands and traditions). This is a very special tool for me and I am so glad I found you on a web search!
I will certainly share your drum with other drum makers and tell them your approach.
I hope all is well with you both and look forward to staying in touch in the future when my son is ready for his own drum.
The very best, Crista Harrington-Berryessa – Califirnia, USA.

Tack så mycket!!!!
Rayen Amanda – Chile
Dearest Susanne & Erik
I don’t know how you feel about your drums, but I have felt as if I was expecting a child. Reason why I think you should know where it has come to live and what particular significance it has for me, and the work ahead of us. It is an amazing story that coincides with the paper I received from one of you in which you state that the order is placed on an astral plane, then made and displayed on your website for its recognition. If the drum hadn’t had its name I probably wouldn’t have been fed the doses of information that were suddenly available and placed in perspective. Naming is powerful as we say around here.
Actually I’m not a drummer and thus confess it was much to my surprise being completely blown away by “Lossen” (Lynx). For several days my dreams were interrupted by visions of myself playing the drum. Also in my wake condition it played with a firm, steady beat in my subconsciousness – a certain insistence from the other side. Now, later, it does make sense.
The last couple of years I’ve been working with Jaguar as a guide and mapper. It makes sense after several years immersed in Latin American culture, where Jaguar is as central as Bear or Wolf in the North American cultures. We have no “wild” jaguars in Europe, and Lynx is probably the closest we get to a similar feline. I actually had to look the word up, because I couldn’t remember exactly what “Los/Lynx” was in Danish, and I certainly didn’t understand why I kept returning to that drum, why I had to journey on the sound of a drum I didn’t even know. Exciting how – when I finally realized that Los is Lynx – it all fell into place.
I know Lynx. Lynx with eyes like two shining stars. Lynx the constellation, almost invisibly stretching itself on the celestial bow between Auriga and Bear. Lynx who connects, links and gently serves the light in a truth. Lynx, who magically operates from a place beyond the visible, with eyes that see what others cannot yet see. The knower of ancient secrets.
There is also an African legend of Lynx marrying the Morning Star and hence connects the Stars with a being on Earth to create the flow between as above so below, what we are born from and what we become. Stars are shining in the eye of lynx from the deep shades of the forests. And in the forest, Star Dancers dance under the open sky. We dance for our heritage, to heal the earth, ourselves, and to remember. I am a Star Dancer dancing to the rhythm of the drums. Maybe next I’ll step forward and drum for others. The future does not exist, as we all know, until it happens – and so we must wait to see what time unravels.
The drum obviously has the exact sound as in my imagination and my dreams. The drumstick you sent along, a beautiful greenish wool poof with curls, looks like the one I saw myself holding. I am utterly impressed by this much coincidence. Every time I sit down something new unfolds. Lynx truly reaches a place deep inside me – as in the stories from the Elders – as I remember them.
I could continue writing adding just more and more of my wonders – but still there’s so much that need to fall into place, so many stories yet untold. We just had our first welcoming ceremony to greet each other formally. Thanks for the juniper incense. What a wonderful gesture to accompany the drum with something already familiar. I love it !
All my blessings, – Louise Barner – Denmark
Dear Erik and Susanne,
The drum arrived this afternoon – without problem and any extra charges. Thank you for helping me with this!
It is utterly beautiful I already love it 🙂 The stick has lovely touches of indigo color and I wondered if the hairs you added were wolf’s
hairs ? – Once again I would like to thank you for all these beautiful gifts and for you kindness.
All the best to both of you!
Sylvie, Fribourg. Switzerland.
thank you so much for your wonderful works!!

Dear Erik and Susanne,
The most beautiful drum arrived, her voice is low and the bloodline thread of wool in the drumstick tugs at my heart. A young male turkey is out clucking under the leafing butternut tree; I will follow with song when he leaves…thank you for the most beautiful gift ever, like eternal birthdays and Christmas’, blessings.

Hi Erik, Susanne,
I received the drum and completely forgot to let you know right away due to my travel.. You sent me an email that you shipped it on April 17 and I received a notification from my post office on April 22 already! I wasn’t able to pick it up right away because I left the town the next day, but picked it up the week after. Just want to let you know that it got to US within a few days this time.
The drum is absolutely gorgeous.. I welcomed it with the Juniper sticks you included. I loved the sound.. Thank you so much! I read the instructions and will take a very good care of it.
Thank you both for such a beautiful piece,
Anna, San Jose, USA
Thank you Erik,
Your additional information is wonderful.
And yes – as soon as I saw the picture of “The Panther” I knew she was my drum. Her name is perfect. And then when I read she was made of reindeer hide and birch I was even more convinced. And then when I read where she was made – and by who – even more so.
Thank you for your work. I’m very touched by the fact that two of the pins are from those very special trees (the old Elm and the Lightening Struck Tree).
I have one more question. What did you use to dye the hide?
Please save her for me – and I’ll get this off to you.
Laurel, Minnesota, USA
Hello Erik and Susanne
The Panther has arrived safe and sound! I found myself longing for her today. I opened the door and sniffed the air – as if I could smell her on the breeze. 5 minutes later I received the notice that she was waiting at the post office.
She is sitting in front of my ancestor altar.
Now we will begin to get to know each other.
Thank you so much for your work,

Just to let you know that my BEAUTIFUL CAVE DRUM arrived this afternoon. My dog loves the smell but not touching it, laying near it.
How do I use the two pieces of wood? We usually awaken a drum with tobacco and sweetgrass.
Many Blessings of Love and Gratitude,

Hello and good morning to you both.
After unpacking the drum and playing my first beat i transcended into a deep penetrating stillness. I couldn’t believe the power of “Yggdrasil”.
Thank you so much for creating such a powerful tool to deepen my awareness.
I’m sure “Transformation” is an incredible piece also but i have not completed my transformation yet. I am still growing and learning everyday so i believe “Yggdrasil” is the drum for me.
I am so over powered by the deep vibrations of the drum! Really fantastic!
My partner Katie and our 12 week unborn baby really feel the penetration of the sound.
I will for sure be looking for another addition to the transcendental tools in the near future.
For now i have some beating to do.
Best wishes and many thanks

Dear Susanne and Erik,
the package with the drum arrived yesterday. And Frank was the one to accept it… that was not the plan of course, usually all packages are dropt downstairs in the cafe. But well, I guess the drum wanted to come to him directly 🙂 So he was sitting in front of the package like a little boy waiting for me to come home. I couldnt take it away, so we opened the package right away, even though it wasnt his birthday yet.
He loves the drum, me too in fact, I think it is a very good match. It really has a strong presence, we are very impressed by the wonderful work you do. we enjoyed the juniper a bit for the welcome, Frank will have a smoke ritual today for a proper welcome.
So altogether – many many huge thanks!! We love what you do and we are so happy to have such a special drum now with us.
All the best and many thanks
