Drum Repair: Re-building ~ Re-tuning ~ Repair

If you have a djembe or other traditional drum that requires repair or re-building, Archaic Roots is the parent company for Pachamama Drums & Repair provides professional djembe servicing and re-skinning with many years of experience. I repair drums from all over the southeast, from Metro Atlanta to Asheville. I usually schedule a personal pick for most drum repair jobs, but you can also mail your drum in for repairs as well.



Drum Re-skinning
Drum re-skinning starts at $120 (including skin). Sometimes, further work and or materials may be necessary or recommended (i.e. replacement rope, metal rings and welding, woodwork and body repair) Since drum repair is a fine art and will vary for each instrument, all jobs taken on will be carefully inspected on receipt and quoted accordingly.
We gladly offer discounts for schools, education centers, etc.

Re-tuning Drum Skins

Fine-tuning (including a tuning lesson) $20

Full tune up (vertical ropes need pulling) $40

Drum Repairs
Pachamama Drums provides experienced artisan techniques, so if you have any other problems (cracked shell, broken rings, sharp rim), I’ll assess the drum and see how I can help.

Private Visionary Immersion
This weekend long retreat is built for you, with the instruments and topics you would like to work on during our time together.  During your personal immersion we can build various instruments like a bamboo didgeridoo, Native American style flute, drum, rattle, or a pit fired ocarina. If you don’t want to build an instrument, we can work on other projects such as a personal smudge fan, dream-catchers, or whatever your heart desires. Want to explore rarely seen natural treasures in southern Appalachia? Let’s go explore the local waterfalls, trails and more; collect materials for art or instruments, learn about medicinal plants, or discuss historical or cultural aspects of the area or world. Spend the weekend in a your own tent, in our tipi, primitive cabin, or in a private in-dome bedroom with bathroom; it’s all up to you.
