  Renaissance Drum  
 

Finished and Kit Renaissance Drums

 

Drums have evolved slowly throughout the ages and one change that can clearly be seen is the different method of tensioning the skins between medieval and Renaissance drums.

The medieval drum is rope tensioned directly onto thick goat skin heads and has a single snare on the beaten head, whilst the Renaissance drum applies the rope tensioning through counter hoops which spread the forces enabling the use of thinner calf skin heads. The easier vibration of the thinner heads allows a triple snare to be used on the non-beaten head.

Drum Kit
The same range of Drums are offered in kit form for home assembly.

The price includes the license to build one instrument for private use.

No previous experience of instrument making is required to build our drum kits.

A top quality 3mm laminated birch shell is supplied ready to assemble around pre-bent beech hoops using a set of 40 special clamps.

An instruction manual and photosheet take the builder 'step by step' through each stage of construction.

Hemp cord, leather buffs, gut snares, a pair of traditional style drumsticks are all included in these versatile kits.

 

Medieval Drum Kits: The diameter of the drum is fixed but the builder determines the final depth of the drum up to 50cm and hence whether it is a side drum or a long drum.

Renaissance Drum Kits: Two solid beech counterhoops are supplied bent ready for final fitting. The diameter of the drum is fixed but the builder determines the final depth of the drum and hence whether it is a side drum or a long drum.

All the kits Include free access to our customer 'Helpline' should you need any advice on construction, setting-up or playing.
