The 18" Goat drum with Ash frame, is a robust, beautiful and powerful drum. This is a popular intermediate size for those who do not want to compromise with the deep drum voice, but still want a drum that is well suited for traveling and moving with. The goat drum has a medium-thick and strong skin that sings both deeply and long, and is resistant to weather changes.

I mostly tie the goat drum with wire instead of leather laces. This provides a handle which is very durable, and which maintains its tension regardless of the weather or temperature.If you want the drum to be tied with a leather lace from Goat then you can add it to the order.

Hear example HERE.

Because it has an integrated tuning system, within seconds you can tune the drum to be brighter or deeper as desired. This makes the drum unique and very well suited to Nordic climates because it solves the usual challenges faced by leather drums; humidity and temperature.


Listen to an example HERE.

The handle is comfortable to hold and is shaped like a cross, symbolizing the four directions, better known as the indigenous medicine wheel. You can also choose to add a leather handle, which makes the grip very comfortable to hold.


These beautiful lifelike drumsticks are light, easy to hold and are well balanced for easy hitting on the drum. They come in many different shapes and colors. Just the way nature wants it.

Decorative kit:
Give your drum a beautiful touch with beautiful feathers, beads and leather laces. In the package you get beads in different sizes, small and large feathers, and eather cord (blue, brown, white or green depending on stock).

Leather handle:
Beautiful and nut-brown laces of nappa leather from Deer are wrapped around the four directions of the handle. Firstly, this gives a very beautiful handle that is soft and comfortable to hold, especially if you play for longer periods of time. In addition, it also provides an aesthetically pleasing center for the drum's four directions. Design, shape and colors may vary from the images.

The animals from which the skin comes live in the open and are felled in the open, mainly for food.
