Key work of art: Giant Soft Drum Set (1967) - Claes Oldenburg
A drum is a percussion musical instrument, consisting of a membrane called a drumhead that is stretched taut over a cylindrical tube that is open at the other end. The membrane is struck, either with the hand or with a drumstick, and the tube forms a resonating chamber for the resulting sound. The sound of a drum depends on how the drum is constructed.
In most popular music and jazz, drums usually refers to a drum kit or set of drums, and drummer to the band member or person who plays them.
In the past, drums were used as a means of communication. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum [Jun 2005]
