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

If you have a djembe or other traditional drum that requires repair or re-building, Archaic Roots 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 Rebuilding:

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 Rope Drums

  • Fine-tuning (including a tuning lesson) $20
  • Full tune up (vertical ropes need pulling) $40

 

Drum Repairs

Archaic Roots 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.

Native American Style Flute Building Workshop- 2020
During this workshop you will be learning how to make your own Native American style flute. We will start with a pre-drilled square flute blank, then we will be making the sound hole (splitting edge) and channel, rounding the blank, carving a totem, adjusting the key, adding the holes and tuning each, decorating the flutes, and discussing the history, culture, and playing techniques. This class usually takes around 6 hours to complete, and you will be birthing your own custom flute by the end of the class.
We try to refrain from using any power tools in this process. Please be prepared to use files, hand drills, sand paper and fire to create your flute.
