May the drumbeat
soothe your spirit,
and awaken your voice
to sing wild and free.
We offer Several styles of drums. We have separated the into two categories. Toning Drums and Custom Medicine Drums. It is also possible to make your own drum with guidance in a ceremony setting. See below for details.
These tunable drums are goatskin head with a Mulberry frame. Being tunable makes them ideal for getting the perfect tone regardless of environmental conditions. They are quality made by a third party and customized with a special drumstick and handle. They have deep warm resonance with rich overtones and play very sensitively compared to our medicine drums. They are great for vocal toning - the lightweight head resonates with the voice, amplifying the it to fill the space with ethereal, magical sounds. They are available in multiple sizes from 12 to 38 inches with 16" and 22" being most popular. Please contact Joy for information or special orders.
16" Toning Drum - $135
18" Toning Drum - $145
22" Toning Drum $175
If you want the drum shipped (within the continental U.S.), add $27 to the purchase price.
Our drum sticks are made from wood and materials from used, repurposed, or recycled materials sources when possible. Do not take your drumstick for granted! Getting the best sound from your drum requires just the right stick. One stick is included FREE with drum purchase. Styles vary to include natural local wood, repurposed maple or oak sticks, and various beater styles from traditional leather to our custom soft sticks ideal for use on the toning drums. See pics above for two styles.
Heartsong Medicine Drums
Thank you, Michael, for the beautiful and powerful drum I bought from you. I enjoy playing it in all my ceremonies and healing sessions around the world. My clients believe it had special vibrations and a built-in orchestra in it. I highly recommend Michael Cutter’s drums.

A message from the maker...
Creativity fuels my life. Making drums comes from a deep place within, which is about healing, creativity and helping others. I worked hard to learn this sacred art - it was a healing journey. My spirit calls me to make drums, to play them, to sing for healing and joy. When I make a drum, I participate in a sacred circle, blessing the materials, thanking the animals, plants and guiding energies (the circle of life). I offer cleansing smoke to the hides and frames, and say prayers to prepare them to be healing tools. There is a lot that goes into it, and the drum is a powerful tool, but, the real power is in the human heart. I believe that if you use the drum with reverence, humility, and passion, that it will not only bring healing you and your clients, but becomes a force of upliftment of the planet.

Make Your Own Drum
Build-your-own-drum ceremonies happen from time to time. There is an ancestral altar space and we work with sage and herbs to cleanse and bless the materials. These ceremonies are a great way to connect deeply with your drum, and it is often a healing experience for those attending. Check the schedule or feel free to call and schedule a time. You can schedule individual or group sessions to make your drum. Prices for making your own drum vary but are similar to purchasing a drum depending on the details of the gathering.
Use feather fans to distribute smoke from sage or for more advanced healing techniques. All fans have been made with the utmost attention to physical and energetic cleanliness, attention to detail and ethics. They are truly sacred items. Fans shown are only samples, contact us for current stock. Custom orders available.
