Carry your drum to the beach, to the woods, or to your drum circle with one of our fully lined and padded bags. Choose from a wide variety of Native American prints or solids. EVERY BAG sports an EXTRA WIDE and very HEAVILY PADDED shoulder strap for comfortable carrying. EVERY BAG contains a special pocket for your free drum stick.
If you want, add a pocket to carry your sage and smudge bowl. Attach a ring to clip on your keys. Each bag is unique and customized to your exact needs. Some people add pockets to carry a special rattle. Leather fringe is popular. Custom bags become a work of art to protect your special drum.
Call today to have a drum bag built to your specifications. We will ask for your height and weight so that your bag fits you perfectly. We also need to know whether you are right or left handed, as this determines how we build the bag to feel most comfortable and functional for you.
And remember, a custom drum bag also makes a great gift for a friend in your drum circle.

Here are two examples of padded and lined rattle and flute pockets. On the purple bag, the customer requested an attached rattle pocket. The terra cotta flute pocket detachs and becomes a separate carry bag for the flute alone. Or, attached to the drum bag, both instruments travel together.
$35.00 extra for a padded and lined detachable or attached instrument pocket.

A LA CARTE -ADD EXTRAS!
ALL NEW - The Drum People have teamed up with another Native American small business, which specializes in embroidery. Diane creates awesome totem animal embroidered patches that really dress up your drum bag. Call for a quote on your totem animal. Diane's embroidered patches run from $10.00 for a medicine wheel up to $25.00 for a full scale mountain lion, eagle or very detailed bear. Photographs of Diane's patches will be available soon.
Add a special padded pocket for a flute or rattle to your drum bag: $35.00. I will make a three layer padded pocket that protects your special flute or rattle and allows you to carry it right there with your drum! Customers love this special feature. It is detachable so you can carry just your flute or rattle bag. See a few examples below.
Add more leather fringe to your drum bag: $10.00. I buy only the highest grade of buckskin, so at $4.30/square foot, the only way I can recoup cost is to charge more for extra fringe. There is no extra cost for additional leather on the padded flute or rattle bags.
Diane's Totem Animal Appliques - prices range from $10.00 - $40.00, depending upon complexity. Call for a quote (butterfly, mountain lion, eagle, horse, dragonfly, medicine wheel, bear, turtle, etc.)

FABRIC SELECTION CHANGES REGULARLY.
We carry a wide variety of canvas solids and Native American prints. We choose heavy duty upholstery fabric so that your drum will have the support and protection it needs. Also, tougher fabric lasts a lifetime. We use natural tone leather to decorate the more deluxe bags. Call to discuss your fabric preferences. Didn't see anything you liked above?
