Musical Drums Price Online in Bangladesh |

Drums are now easy to buy from home online in Bangladesh. The use of various types of drums has been around for ages in our country. Drum is a percussion instrument. It is the oldest musical instrument. In spite of various development and modification, it has kept its basic structure same for centuries. Drum consists of at least one skin which is called drum head and a shell on which the skin is stretched. When the skin is hit with the player’s hand or a stick the drum makes desired sound. The skin can be adjusted. If the skin is stretched tightly the drum will make a high pitch sound and if the skin is loose it will make a low pitch sound. Drums can be played individually by a player using only one drum. They can be played in a set of two or more like Bongo or Congo. With a set of different pitched drums and cymbals the modern drum kit is made.



The oldest drums were found in China and they were dated 5500 BC. These drums were made with alligator skin. Which is the evidence that drums were there from the ancient time? The primitive people did not use it as a musical instrument. They used the drums for different purpose. The drums were used during various rituals such as worship or when someone died they used to play the drum as a ritual of funeral. People of that time also used the rhythm of drums as a sign of social dominance. At that time people used to have large drums that made loud sounds. So they used the drum as a medium of communication with people who were far away. In Sri Lanka, drums have been used as a medium of communication for a long time and the Sri Lankan drum has a history of over 2500 years old. Gradually the drums were used in the battle field by the military. Military used drums as a calling, meeting or attacking alert. The rhythm of drums has been around humans for a long time. In different ages drums played different roles until now they are mostly used as a musical instrument.
