Amazon sells an inexpensive serviceable frame drum with a goat skin head that is perfect for shamanic work.  The head is tightly stretched, and for the larger 18"+ drums, the head rarely getsfloppy when humidity is high.  This can be a problem with smaller natural-skin headed drums from this same manufacturer, however. I bought this exact drum from a shamanic teacher and paid more for it than Amazon is asking.  Inexpensive and very satisfying for one's first shamanic drum investment; great sound, lightweight and very alive for shamanic work. Don't leave it in a hot car, though, or the hide head will shrink as it dries out and the frame will rupture in a dramatic, catastrophic way.

Atlanta Pro Percussion, one source for the Remo Buffalo Drum, synthetic-head hoop drums suitable for shamanic practice.  They hold up nicely, have a good resonant sound, and are not affected by humidity. It will go floppy and flat when it gets warm, however: the mylar head relaxes when it gets hot in a similar way that hide drums relax when they get moist. Realistically though, I have  only encountered this problem rarely while drumming outside on a sunny day. Great for cold winter days as the drum head gets nice and tight (raising the pitch) as it gets colder.
