Bass Drum (completed 12/2018)

Based off of a Tupan/Davul as well as a Tibetan Kengirge.

Especially inspired by the drum played by Alash Ensemble, made by Ayan Shirizhik and Sholban Salchak. Check out their music here.

Maple ply frame, deer skin heads, hemp rope, and vegetable tanned cow leather tuners with buckskin ties. 

Hickory sticks wrapped with wool yarn around a felt core.
