Cylinder drums come in all shapes and sizes, of course, but you can also make your own. And where you might not turn your hand to a simple taurom, a painted, engraved taurom can require the utmost of your artistic talents. The taurom can be crafted at different levels. Depending on your wishes, we can supply the materials in various degrees of finishes.

1. First, various materials (tubes, tarpaulin, leather, sleeve tube, aluminum tube) can be offered unfinished. Young people are given the opportunity to process these materials (sawing, measuring, drilling, placing grommets,…).
This is primarily a cross-curricular approach where we approach Taurom fabrication from a broad perspective.

2. A light version is assembly. Here the materials are pre-machined: cut to size, fitted with the necessary suspension points, grommets,…

Both pathways are supported by us: we provide the necessary tools, roadmaps, manuals,…

It is important to create a solid qualitative instrument. Otherwise it will lead to nothing! Transit is developing methods to work with this tool in a way that it can be used effectively in schools, free time.

The Taurom is briefly introduced by Reemi Mistiaen, professional musician. Techniques, posture, materials used, basic sounds,… are covered in this taster.

Everything in nature is modeled after a sphere, cone or cylinder, you must learn to paint using these simple figures, then you can do whatever you want.

You will be guided through an entire process where we start from 0. All materials, tools, step-by-step plans, manuals and templates are provided.

To keep an overview of the Taurom’s construction process, everything is divided into 4 stages. Each stage addresses one part of the process. Parts 1 and 2 focus on the most important parts of the Taurom: the drum or Taurombody and the drumhead.

  1. The drum or Taurombody: cutting PVC pipe to size and drilling locating holes
  2. Drum sheet: cutting PVC-tarp to size and placing grommets
  3. Attributes: cutting aluminum tubes, leather handle fitted with grommets, preparing mantela
  4. Assembly: the various parts are mounted on the drum, the sail is stretched into a full-fledged Taurom

Each section has a number of web pages where you are guided through the building process in a detailed manner. Access to the different pages is made possible by a navigation bar located at the bottom of each web page.

This bar features pictures, buttons and descriptive titles.

1. Photos and buttons refer to the overview pages.

On each overview page you get general information regarding the step:

1. Inventory of materials and tools
2. Additional information regarding music or preparatory process

2. Each stage in the construction process has a color.

A button features the following colors:
1. Red: drum or tube
2. Green: drumhead
3. Yellow: attributes
4. Blue: assembly

3. Descriptive titles: these titles refer to the web pages with respective step-by-step plans. Each page features:

– an introduction text
– tips and tricks
– step-by-step plan:

– the different phases are shown on a color background
– detail photos with descriptive text of the steps. After clicking, the photo is enlarged so that every detail is smoothly visible.


-additional information on tools and equipment:


In the navigation bar the landing page (black button) is always referred to. This page provides general information regarding the building process.
It also links to useful applications:
