Norman Ledoux is the owner of Black Sage Woodworks. This handheld 18 inch Buffalo hide is stretched over cedar planks which are joined with wooden joiners with as little glue as possible. The glue has a tendency to interfere with the resonating of the sound. The cedar planks are held together through the tension of the stretched hide. Each drum comes with a drumstick that has been harvested from a Chokecherry tree.
