Drums are the world's oldest and most ubiquitous musical
instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged
for thousands of years. The drum is a member of the percussion group
of music instruments, technically classified as a membranophone.
Drums consist of at least one membrane, called a drumhead or drum
skin, that is stretched over a shell and struck, either directly with parts
of a player's body, or with some sort of implement such as a
drumstick, to produce sound. Other techniques have been used to
cause drums to make sound, such as the "Thumb roll". Most drums
are considered "untuned instruments", however many modern
musicians are beginning to tune drums to songs
