Remo Fiberskyn 3 Frame drum Pimped Out Tuvan / Siberian Shaman Style

I added a number of cords made of braided satin ribbon, I also suspended hand made 18mm brass leaf bells from the arm

I prefer a synthetic head for any drum I travel with, they are less prone to humidity problems and are much lower maintenance

the Remo Fiberskyn 3 drums have an interesting voice feature- in addition to their consistent, mellow almost bell like tone, they have a more subtle “back voice”

I have also found that having a suspension system on the frame drums allows the Vibration from the head to resonate throughout the entire drum without getting damped down by the hand holding the frame, which is desirable in a Shaman Style Drum

This particular suspension is a cross between the rigid suspension of a Bodhran and the cord/sinew suspensions common to Shaman Drums

I have found a wooden grip handle less tiring for longer periods of drumming with the added benefit of allowing more drum control
