Percussion Instruments

Percussion instruments include drums, tambourines, cymbals, bells and gongs. If you stretch a material tightly across a tube and hit it, it will vibrate. This is the basis of the drum or tambourine. When you hit cymbals or gongs and ring bells, they also vibrate and make sounds.
