This rattle is beautiful, Susanne. An astonishingly beautiful spirit. A completely engaging voice. A thing of beauty and power. And ready to work, right out of the box! A real partner. I could not be happier. It is such a gift, and I am most grateful to you for it. I don't know how you can bear to let such a presence go :- )  many blessings to you... may you bring forth many more such beauties into the world! with gratitude,

"Hi Erik and Susanne,

 

The precious drum and rattle has arrived:-) We are beyond happy with them. They are magical instruments you have created. The sound of the drum reverberating is phenomenal and more powerful than we imagined. The rattle is a beauty too.

Here are some photos from our ritual in a place called Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island. It's one of our 'power' spots. Another spot in Australia  is the stream flowing down from Mount Warning in Northern New South Wales. So very beautiful to be in nature, connected to all the elements and to our ancestors, spirit guides and animal totems (with your drum and rattle too!).

 

Best wishes,

Drew and Kate - Australia.

 


 
Erik and Susanne! I have just received the drum just now and it is beautiful!! I love it and I love how compact and easier it is to carry. I will surely take care of her and will now proceed to the small ritual to welcome her into my home and practice.

You do works of art! Really. Bless you both!

"In the autumn of 2011, I played "The Ambre Pearl from Mårhøj mound".
43
times the storie was told inside the burial chamber of the largest single-chamber passage grave "Mårhøj passage grave" at Hindsholm on Funen.
Here I had
the great pleasure to be able to use a drum and assorted rattles which Erik and Suzanne had made for me.
The
ritual instruments helped me to feel a completely different time, The Stone Age, and through the show they bore the storie. They became right away part of me -  My beautiful telling tools.

Dearest Susanne,

... About my fan... what can I say? I had already falling in love with him by just looking at the picture you sent me, but being able to hold him in my hands is an incredible feeling. I really love it and thank you so much for this huge gift.

May Great Spirit bless you always,

Hi Susanne and Erik,

The drum is here. The way you carefully packed the drum in its box was very impressive and requires so much skill!
This drum is absolutely beautiful and the sound is mesmerizing...it echoes within itself. I am hearing other almost bell-like sounds, as you had described. I knew the drum was going to be great but I am shocked at its presence; it is very powerful and I feel the need to "feed" it somehow. Maybe it wants to tell me its name. I shall sit with the drum for a long while and see what comes. Thank you for such a wonderful companion and for your great service and kindness. I will be contacting you again...I think I will also need one of your rattles in the future. :)
Also, I love the beater, and the juniper incense! I will be buying more of that from you, as well. :)

Sending much gratitude to you both,
Stephanie - Oregon - USA

Erik and Susanne...

just wanted to let you know that my beautiful drum and drum stick have arrived this morning in perfect condition.
I once again want to express my deepest appreciation to both of you for all of the listening to spirit and energy you have put into not only this drum but undoubtedly all the drums and shamanic tools you make.  I feel priviledged and gifted in such a profound way to be able to carry forward the vibration of your land--the trees, the animals, and the people, into my land and to the many lands that this drum is asking to be taken. I will use the  juniper in a special ceremony to bless this drum into my home and into my being in the knowing that it shall always be also connected to you, as all of us are connected in spirit.
May the clarity and the sweetness and the rich vibration of "Bells in Tibet" find you always in good health and with many blessings.  Much Love...Tara,XXX. Canada
 

Hello Erik and Susanne,

Many months later ... I am still in awe of my beautiful drum. When I use her I can see a face appearing in the drum, looking out at me, always in the same place. Also, I and many others that have been present when I have been drumming have heard the sound of singing above the sound of the drumming. I feel that this is the spirit of Freya. Words cannot describe how special this drum is to me and I am so grateful to both of you for creating such a beautiful and magical being.
Brightest blessings to you both, 
Mai  - Leicestershire in England, UK! 
 

Dear Erik and Susanne,

The drum you sent me arrived yesterday, beautifully packed and in perfect condition. Just like Snakedancer Rattle, it is more perfect for me than I had imagined. I very much appreciated the Juniper smudge you included. I used it in a lovely ceremony to welcome the new drum home and to introduce her to my few special stones and Snakedancer rattle. I look forward to establishing a wonderful relationship with my new drum! - As I have had a lot of smudging to do lately, I can understand now how feather fans can be quite helpful (experience is a good teacher). I could also see how these might be useful to gently brush off any negativity or stress that might have been brought home after a difficult day. Is this a typical use for them? - Thank you so much for all your help, Erik and Susanne. I feel so fortunate to have received such beautiful instruments made with such care, attention and love.                                              

Wishing you all the best,
Kate, New York

 

Dear Erik and Susanne,

I received the rattle last Thursday.  Thank you so much for getting it to me so soon.  I love the rattle, it is beautiful and the sound is wonderful.
My teacher's birthday is in the middle of October.  I am certain she will love using it during ceremonies.
Thank you again.
Blessings to you both,
Myrian, USA

 

Dear Susanne and Erik,
Airborne Eagle arrived this evening in perfect condition. It is profoundly beautiful. Every detail of it made with such love and intent. I just finished playing it for the first time.  Not until I stopped playing can I sense how different I feel. Deeply quiet, full, a resonant feeling from my lower left rib cage up to my head. I really don't have words to describe my sensations.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Hi Susanne
 

Got the drum. Love it! It has even more “fire” color than in the picture – which I like. The tone is wonderful. I am very happy with the drum.  Thank you.

 Hi...Susanne 
The rattles came today! They are far more beautiful in hand than in pictures. The wood with each rattle has wonderful and distinct character. Thank you for creating these treasures and sending instructions for use and safe keeping.
Thank you again for your fine craftsmanship.
Heidi,  San Diego - California 

 

Just wanted to say thank you for the drum I bought from you last year it was
the one called lagoon. I have been working with it and it really has become
a great friend.
You really make remarkable drums and once again thank you for creating these
beautiful tools to work with.
All the best for 2007

Greetings, folks,
I wanted to let you know that my drum came in the mail just fine. It was just as I wanted it, clean and blank, no spirit in it yet. I decorated the drum with the Nine Worlds and many other sacred symbols, and called the spirit into it, and she woke up. Her name is Talu, which is old Anglo-Saxon for "story", "tale", "accounting". She is a divinatory drum - one places a querent's small object on the surface, strikes gently from underneath, and the object jumps to a symbol that is the right answer. She wanted bells and other decorations (I think she is a bit vain) so I carefully drilled tiny holes around the back edge, and hung various bells, clappers, bags of stones and herbs, and other amulets given to me by friends. Many folks donated to her decoration.

I'm attaching a photo of myself holding her so that you can see how she turned out. The other photo is of the back, and all the amulets. I want to thank you for making such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, and I am glad that you folks are doing this sacred work.
