22Mridangam

The best instrument you can use for Carnatic Music. After you hear to it in a perfect tone you'll get to know the real meaning of elixir. You can hear it's peculiar rhythm only from the hands which is dedicated to it and love to do it! And the sounds from it are really hard to get with a professional touch...

Indian classical drum. Mirthangam is known as "The king of Percussions".

23Maraca
24Glockenspiel

Prefer the xylophone, although I can play this and not the xylophone, weird, Right?

Sounds pretty cool, but when it gets played it has to really be hit. Perfect for jungle dances!

A go to instrument if you want to have fun but is also capable producing dynamic sounds in the studio or on stage
