Sunreed Soft Beaters

Sunreed offers a new special padded drum stick which adds to the resonant quality of your drum.  Our softer padded stick will allow a richer, fuller, softer voice to rise from your drum.  Traditional drum sticks are a little harder, creating a more 'sharp' voice to your drum.  Made from local New England moose maple (swamp willow) and deer leather, suede/leather combo, or our choice, a leather/faux fur combo, (faux fur will give you the richest voice.)  All have a foam padding beneath the covering.  Colors of leather, suede and faux fur may change from that pictured.   Approximately 16"-18" long.

Choose from these 3 choices, below.  (see, also, Bear Beaters at bottom of page.)

Bear Fur Drum Beater

Sunreed occasionally can offer these rare bear fur drum beaters.  These beaters add an even more refined quality of voice to your drum.  The soft padding of the fur allows a yet even more softer, richer, fuller voice to rise from your drum.  The fur has the added bonus of a gentle 'swoosh' of the fur striking the drum, which gives a unique voice to your drum playing, and a most unique affect to the listener, whether that is you, by yourself or in practice with others.  Even as bear is medicine of the heart, it opens the heart through the voice of the bear in unison with the drum.  It is understood that the striking of the drum, in general, with any beater is the union of male & female principles of the universe, (the beater, the male activating principle, and, the drum, representing the great circle of life.)   When struck together, this is an act of creation, and why drumming, from the shamanic and indigenous perspective, is a sacred act of great joy and beauty.

Traditional drum sticks ar harder, creating a more 'sharp' voice to your drum.  These are made by our drum painter, Dorothy Stone.  Theay are made from local New England maple sticks and local, legally hunted black bear fur.  They have a felt core for padding beneath the fur hide.  Varies 17"- 21" long.  These are hand made products, and will, also, vary in appearance, size and color of fur, etc.
Due to restrictions on bear products, these cannot ship to some US states, and not outside of US.

We have only 3 currently in stock, though they can be ordered at other times.
