|Button Point drum reproductions|
|The braided sinew cord that holds the|
caribou rawhide drumskin in place
begins and ends at the handle, where
it is wrapped partway up the handle.
|The reproductions beside the printed pattern of the original drums. The photo is on a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper and shows two drums stacked on top of each other. I reproduced the one in the middle.|
|Despite the size, they sound very|
similar to large Inuit drums, but with
the volume turned way down.
|Another view of those extra holes. The drum on the floor|
in the background has small pegs inserted into the holes.
|I like the pattern that is visible on the drum skin on the one in back. For reference, the hoops are about 7 inches in diameter.|
