The very best way to care for your drum long term is 1) bear grease treatment twice a year AND 2) keep your drum covered in leather all the time!!  We make beautiful moose leather drum bags but they can be outside the budget sometimes. So for a budget solution our split leather is perfect.  We select 6 to 7 sq ft pieces and this is plenty to wrap your drum with.  It can then live inside a canvas or plastic bag…..but the leather will protect your drum.

A natural hide drum is always moving with humidity changes. During high humidity a drum skin absorbes moisture from the air and the skin expands.  The tone goes down and if really humid a drum can go flat.  When really dry the opposite happens and the skin shrinks and the tones gets higher.  A drum wrapped in leather is protected from these two extremes.  Over the years we have learned that when we are at a powwow and end up in a weather extreme, if we want to properly show/play our drums we put a bunch in drum bags or wrapped in leather.  Even if it has been cold and rainy for 2 days when we pull a drum out of it’s leather protector the tone is perfect and strong.
