Drum setThis includes the bass drum, cymbals, tambourine, castanets, triangle, gong, and other percussion instruments like the wood block.  These instruments are found in most rock, pop, and jazz bands. 

Timpani:  These copper-colored drums are also called the kettle drums because they look like big kettles.  Each drum plays a different note.  Orchestras usually have from two to four timpani.
