Approved Drum Types

Each drummer must have a single drum. The drums used may be any commercially available drum. 


Please note Indigenous or First Nations drums can definitely be used. We are only listing the “commercially available” drums because quite often Indigenous drums are hand-made or provided as a special gift to us. There is also a story to tell and every drum is unique. We do not wish to categorize them as “commercially available”. Thank you for your understanding.
