Some years back, I came into possession of a large chod drum. It's a beauty too: with the long brocade tail, shells stitched into the band, good craftsmanship, good sound, &c. The former owner no longer had a need for it, as she decided to begin practicing with a group called Celtic Buddhism which evidently doesn't practice chod... that's how it passed to me.
Anyway, this drum is too much for me to handle. I've been storing it for the past six or seven years now. It's in very good condition, even if there's a bit of dust on the fabric cover (which has a convenient strap with which to carry it or sling it over one's shoulder). I no longer wish to store it. I have no idea what to do with it, but I'd particularly like it if it became part of someone's regular practice. Any recommendation, suggestion, or advice will be warmly welcomed. Thank you.
