The Tahitian To'ere is the leader of any group and performance. Its unique voice commands not only the dancers, but the drummers and the audience to follow in its lead. Cook Island Pates have a voice of their own. Similar to the To'ere, the Pates unique harmonies lead any performance. Pasifika Drums is proud to cater to both our Tahitian players and our Cook Islands players.
Our To'eres and Pates are made with Red Ironbark wood. After years of testing, we have settled on this wood due to its sound and hardness. Please note that Red Ironbark is an extremely hard and dense wood so this does add additional weight to the drum.
Lighter weight To'eres or "Patch" To'eres are also available. These To'eres are usually made from a softer and lighter color wood and are inlayed with an Ironwood patch at the hitting spot.
All log drums come standard with our signature carving on the top and bottom. Custom carvings are always welcome. For all custom carving requests, please see the "Custom Drums" section or contact me for more information.
We offer 5 sizes of log drums:
*Custom sizes, shapes, and tones can be accommodated. Please contact me for all custom requests.
