Has anyone bought a drum in Belize made by local drum makers for actual use? I'm sure they can be found down towards Dangriga and Placencia. Wondering about availability around San Pedro. Any personal experiences/thoughts welcome or contacts.

You can make drums and/or take drumming lessons with Emmeth Young, a master Creole drummer in Gales Point.
I have seen some drums for sale at the arts shop by Fidos.

Emmeth looks like the guy to talk to. Found his website. Just need to venture on the mainland next trip. Oh well, guess it means I'll need to take a longer vacation

We stayed at Manatee Lodge in Gales Point. They sent a boat to pick us up in Belize City and took us down the canals and through the northern and southern lagoons to get there. If you have a car you can get there driving, but the boat ride is interesting. We had a few drumming lessons with Emmeth and enjoyed meeting the residents of Gales Point. Only stayed a couple of days, but it seems like the whole town waved and said good-bye as we left. It is one of those places that makes me smile when I think about it.

Hey RobertE: A drum is something that I would buy a kid if I didn't like their parents!

Oh dear God, tell me he doesn't want to bring drums into our house. Isn't it bad enough that we live so close to Boulder?

boys need drums, just say YES, Loie! You could benefit as well. Those early mornings after a late night when somebody doesn't wanna wake up?
Very subtle alarm clock, drums.
