Can I order a drum with out a painting?

Yes.  

I already have a drum.  Can you create a painting for it?

Of course!  Just mail your drum or drop it off with me and I will paint it and send it back to you when it is finished.  

Do you have any vegan drums?

It is important to me, as a vegetarian, to alleviate the suffering of animals whenever possible.  With this in mind, I am working to create more vegan drum options in the near future.

Can you repair a drum?

We would be happy to talk with you about any repairs that you might need.  Email us at bluedeerdrums@gmail.com with photos of your drum and a brief description of how we can help.

Do you teach people how to make drums?

We hold workshops to teach people how to create their own drums.  If you are interested in having BDD come to your community, please contact us at bluedeerdrums@gmail.com.

Can you create murals?

Yes.  Please contact us at bluedeerdrums@gmail.com if you would like us to come and create one for you.

Do you have more art that I can see?

Yes.  Matt is also a freelance designer, animator, and illustrator and you can view his work at mattcanale.com.  He specializes in working with conscious businesses that are trying to make a better world today and for generations to come.

Are these Native American drums?

No.  I do not claim to make drums that belong to any one tradition.  I have studied Native American practices as well as the traditions of many other people of the world.  I am a student of Maestro Manuel Rufino, a Taino elder, who carries an intertribal altar and has studied with teachers from across the Americas.  It is with his blessing that I do this work. 

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, but I prefer that the number of payments are kept to a minimum.

How do payments work?

Drums and bags are purchased online before they are made.  Once the price for a painting or drum stick is agreed upon, half is paid upfront and the second half is paid upon completion.  Sound sharing and sound healing sessions are paid for in advance.
