Each chöd drum is hand crafted and unique. The Bawa wood, or Bhutanese Burl wood used in making chöd drums is known for it beauty and light weight. The elaborate process of creating the traditional 'trin pak' or cloud skin is a highly guarded secret passed down from lamas to select drum makers. This technique allows for the skin to breathe and gives a full sound to the drum. The skin of each drum is one of a kind, like a cloud. You can select the size of your drum and handle choice.
