This very large gourd drum measures 47" around and stands 9" high. The drum head is genuine deer hide and the bells are authentic Hawk bells. This can be played as shown here setting on a surface, or it can be hand held in the air by the leather handle attachment. Genuine sinew attaches the head to the ring tone on the bottom of the gourd. Sound is superb, deep, and resonant. Drum mallet included. This gourd as all of our gourds was grown in Boones Creek.
