22 Mridangam

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".

23 Maraca
24 Glockenspiel

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

25 Snare Drum

One of the first instruments you learn on. Many percussionist learn rhythms on the snare.

Ha Ha, know 'bout 15 percussion instruments, but not this one!

I love the snare because to me it's the heart of the band

26 Bongos

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

27 Djembe

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

28 Cabasa
29 Woodblock
30 Tubular Bells
31 Hi-Hat
32 Wind Chimes
33 Bell
34 Suspended Cymbal

The suspended cymbal can be used in classical or jazz music. The hi-hat keeps the drum set moving.

This sounds pretty cool but only in the right spots, I love playing this!
