A Brevitous Gentleman’s Guide to Percussive Musical Instrumentation

– The Marimba is an instrument of Eastern European origin consisting
of dried animal skins stretched tightly over a resonating chamber.

– The bass drum ought only be played with double kick pedals at
rhythms over 250 beats per minute. Anything slower is a waste of a
perfectly good bass drum.

– The Zarb, also known as a “Tonbak” or a “Krunk Goblet”, is a drum
which is played while wearing special lambskin gloves.

– The Rumitone can only be played in the nude.
