New Limited Edition Samhain Blue Moon Drums

Our Special Collection Samhain Blue Moon Drums are available to pre-order now.

We could hardly believe our eyes when this alignment came into our awareness. Samhain, the Celtic festival marking summers end coinciding with not just a full moon, but a blue moon!

There is something really special about the moment when the sun and moon cycles align with one another. It has happened several times over recent years at the Solstices, Beltane and Lammas. Now, in just a few weeks’ time we are in for the biggest treat of them all: Samhain aligning with the Full Moon.

We are only able to make a limited number of these drums at this time as each drum takes some time to birth. Awakened in ceremony under the Blue Moon at the time of Samhain they will embody the energy of mystery, magic and courage.

These will be 16-inch Shamanic drums made from dark reindeer hide and English ash, with a choice of three different styles, each with a crystal set in the handle which amplifies the energy of this time of year.

Now is the time to consider pre-ordering yours. Here are all the details you will need to decide whether one of these drums is calling you including information about our special three-month payment plan.

 
 

Working with the Blue Moon

This is the Hunter Moon, named by our ancestors who used the brightness of this moon to night-stalk the summer-fattened deer and fox across the recently harvested fields. This moon brings a welcome light to the darkness.

The Blue Moon is the name given to the second full moon that rises within the same month. They are rare: the most recent one was back in March 2018 and the next one isn’t until August 2023. For a Blue Moon to land at the time of Samhain is incredibly special.

We paint a motif on the inside of many of our Special Edition drums and we have chosen Crow for this set. Crow for us is one of the animal’s that embodies Samhain energies. It has a bold, brash and fearless energy. Crow, a messenger from the Otherworld, is associated with the mysteries and magic of this World.

The Energy of Samhain

Samhain is the festival of endings and beginnings marking the point in the wheel of the year where we drop into the long night of winter. Of all the old festivals, this one holds the most magic being the moment when the veil between the worlds is at its most thin.

The Celts saw death and darkness as important and necessary. As the trees are shedding their leaves and the last of the harvest has been brought in, this is a time of death and rebirth, of clearing and cleansing to make way for the new. It's a time to choose those seeds that you are going to take through into the darkness to gestate.

This is the time of rest and regeneration before rebirth.

You and Your Drum

Your drum will have been made specifically for you and holds the energy which speaks to you most at this time.

It is your sacred tool providing an extension to you for all your healing work, whether it be self-healing, healing others or helping heal the Earth. 

Use your drum as a vehicle to journey to the other realms, and connect in with your spirit guides and helpers. Journey on the beat of the drum.

Use it to call in those specific qualities which you seek most in order to find your deep inner knowing and authentic self.

Calm yourself. It's been scientifically proven that people who drum see a drop in their stress and anxiety, as well as reduced blood pressure, increased brain white matter and cognitive function, reduced pain, increased immunity. Regular exposure to the beat of your drum can also help overcome socio-emotional challenges.

We have three Samhain Full Blue Moon drums to choose from
each holding a carefully considered crystal to compliment and amplify the energy at this time.

Magic - Merlinite

Merlinite is the stone of magic, shadows and descent into the deepest places within. It helps connect to the universal energies and enhances our ability to drop into the Otherworlds.

A stone of wisdom, it allows us to understand the greatest beauty of life lies in its mystery.

We have named this drum after the magic that is present at this special time of Samhain, and it will be created with a deep dark blue tension ring in recognition of this blue moon.

Courage - Bloodstone

Bloodstone offers the courage that is needed to follow the heart. It is excellent for people who are undergoing great change in their lives as a result of a spiritual awakening. It helps maintain faith and draw on that inner strength that lies deep within us.

We have named this drum courage, as it takes strength and courage to embrace dropping into the darkness where deep transformation awaits us. It has an intense purple ring to compliment the deep green bloodstone crystal.

Mystery - Moonstone

Moonstone is a stone of mystery and has been used for centuries to connect with the ebb and flow of the moon’s energy. It is a powerful stone for enhancing intuition and facilitating connection to the Otherworlds.

We have named this drum Mystery and will set a White Moonstone crystal in the handle, which represents the energy of the full moon at the height of its power. The ring will be coloured a deep blue in recognition of the time of the blue moon.

Your drum will be made from reindeer hide and will be 16 inches in diameter.

Our 16 inch drums are our most popular sized drums as they are easy to hold and have a lovely deep tone.

The hide is from reindeer who run wild on the Scandinavian tundra. Each year they are brought down and the older ones carefully selected for the cull in a tradition that has spanned thousands of years. Their meat is an important food source and their skins are a by-product of this process. Normally light in colour these hides have been dyed with an organic dye to give them this beautiful dark mottled texture.

The overarching energy of Reindeer is perseverance. The reindeer has an incredible ability to survive in difficult environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3,000 miles in one season.

Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their sure-footedness they can support us to utilise our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure-footed in any situation, enabling us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realise our dreams.

Within each drum we embed a crystal and craft a fluffy handle, which makes the drum really comfortable to hold for those longer drumming sessions.

 

The Birthing of Your Drum

We will birth your drum during the daytime and then once the Full Blue Moon has risen in the winter sky, we will carry out a special awakening ceremony. We will call in the four directions Earth, Air, Fire and Water, smudge your drum with a special awakening incense and call in the Spirit of the Drum.

To birth your drum, we spend time preparing your hoop by sanding it down and finishing it with a layer of bees wax from rescued bees in Lancashire to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.

The timber which makes the drum frame is sourced from an Ash tree grown in England and is made locally by a carpenter who lives in the next town along from our home.

Sourcing locally and as ethically as possible is something which is really important to us, and we take care to understand where all of our materials come from.

We will bind the iron tension ring in coloured suede, cut out the Reindeer hide and then carefully craft your drum.

Your drum will take around seven days to dry as we don’t rush the drying process, and instead allow your drum to dry in the cool winter air.

Then once your drum is completed with its crystal handle fixing, we will post it to you via our courier.

Love from Drum Buyers:

"I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home"

“My deciding factor was intuitive. It was the right drum at the right time - and still is!

I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home. That made all the difference.

It felt personal and cosy to have a drum from you.”

MELISSA  //  Drum Buyer

"I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend"

"I bought a drum from you about a year ago. It's a 16" deer skin with a crimson tension ring and a black tourmaline in the handle.

I just want to tell you how wonderful this drum is. When I first received her I journeyed to meet all who had participated in the making. What a web of connections!

Far beyond you, or the animals involved, to those who mined the metal and the tourmaline, fed the animals, cared for the trees. A lesson in the web of connections. In the journey she told me to call her Echo Moon Stalker.

I have used her for journeying both alone and in my local shamanic circle and her voice is strong and beautiful. I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend.

Thank you so much for this blessing. With gratitude and joy."

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life!

I've been looking on youtube for basic lessons and i really appreciated one that advised to hug the drum, it feels so nurturing to me! The vibrations are amazing, so healing, I cant stop playing it, everytime I feel a bit whacked I play and I feel so energised afterwards.

The beautiful thing about it is knowing how much love and care went into sourcing the materials and making it with such presence, along with the beautiful cleansing at the end.

You can really sense that in the drum and I think it makes a huge difference to the feel, and perhaps even the sound of it. So with absolute heartfelt gratitude to you and all other beings who brought this amazing drum to life. Thank you."

Helen  //  Drum Buyer
