    Now for some serious additions to the drum glossary:

    Hand Drums: A class of percussion instruments played primarily with hands or fingers, often used in folk and popular music in Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Including, but not limited to bongos, cajon, congas, darbuka, djembe, and doumbek.

    Bongos: A pair of small, single-headed hand drums generally held between the knees on a stand, used in Latin American, jazz, or folk music. Originally popularized in the U. S. ca. 1949-50. The smaller of the two heads, known as the macho head, ranges from 6" to 7 3/4" in diameter. The larger head, called the hembra,, ranges from 8" to 9 1/2".

    Conga: A tall, tapered, single-headed hand drum often played in groups of two or more (pl. congas) in Latin American, rock, jazz and folk music. Popularized in the U. S. by Desi Arnaz, bandleader, conguero, and actor in the late 1930s. Sizes include requinto (9"-9 3/4"); quinto 9 3/4"-10 1/2"); conga (10 1/2"-11" inches); tumba (11"-11 3/4"); and supertumba (12"-14").

    more to follow!

    Deodorant: A smell-reducing agent, usually in aerosol can form, and available in a dizzying array of scents and spray can packaging. Usually applied by direct surface spraying to areas of the body, including, but not limited to, the armpits and chest, it is used for combatting excessive sweat and odour emanating from these body regions, (usually post-gig) which allows the drummer to stay within the vicinity of other people, thus eliminating social embarrassment and the "pong" of sweat which may be in various stages of dampness on such person.

    Now for another couple of additions:

    Cajon: Spanish for "box" or "drawer" originally; now used to describe a box-shaped percussion instrument played by hands or sticks. Originated in Cuba, where the drawers of a chest of drawers or dresser were used to provide impromptu hand-drumming accompaniment during street parties or celebrations.

    Most cajones are played while seated, with different parts of the box providing different sounds, not unlike playing different parts of a conga or bongo head. Some cajones have snare wires stretched over a circular opening for a snare-like sound.

    Darbuk, doumbek, and djembe: Bell-shaped hand drums of similar, but not identical origins. Darbuks and doumbeks originated in the Middle East and are made with wooden or metal shells. They are generally played with the fingertips and have a high-pitched sound similar--but not identical to--Indian tablas. They are generally tuned with thumbscrews.

    Djembes originated in Africa, where they were originally made out of wooden shells with animal-skin heads, often decorated with native carvings or patterned cloth. African djembes used elaborately woven ropes for tuning. In the 20th century, shells of metal, fiberglass and other materials, with skin or synthetic heads tuned by thumbscrews or drum keys, were developed to overcome the disadvantages of older rope-tuned drums. They have become popular due to their greater tuning accuracy and ease of use. Tones on djembes are developed by using the fingertips on the rims and by flat slaps toward the center of the drumheads.

    Ocu-Shot The act of hitting yourself in the eye on the backstroke of your drumstick because you were leaning too low over your drums. The accompanying pain assures that you will only do it once.


    Electronic Drums Evil instruments of the AntiChrist that have no soul, and therefore will slowly and silently drain your soul away each time you play them. Ironically, these instruments of Satan are often found in churches, where the sound is characterized as being able to hear the stick hitting the rubber pad far louder than the drum sample in the mix. . .

    BPM: An abbreviation, "beats per minute", used to describe the tempo of music, a very useful application in the percussive arts.

    BMP: An abbreviation, "before Mike Portnoy", used to describe the state of percussive arts. Cf: AMP below.

    AMP: An abbreviation, "after Mike Portnoy", used to describe the state of percussive arts. Not to be confused with AMP, the Australian life insurance company. I'm sure Mike has some sort of insurance though.

    BNP: An abbreviation, "before Neil Peart", used to describe the state of percussive arts. Not to be confused with the other BNP, the British National Party.

    BSc: An abbreviation for the university degree "Bachelor Of Science".

    BSC: An abbreviation, "before Stewart Copeland", used to describe the state of percussive arts. Although, to really understand this change in the field, sometimes you may need a BSc.

    dB: An abbreviation for the decibel, a logarithmic unit that indicates the ratio of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity) relative to a specified or implied reference level. Often used for a wide variety of measurements in science and engineering, most prominently in acoustics, electronics, and control theory.

    dG: An abbreviation for the Dave Grohl, a logarithmic unit that indicates the ratio of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity and frequently both) relative to a specified or implied reference level. Often used for a wide variety of measurements in hard hitting drum styles, the dG measurement works in a similar manner to dB measurement, only with more intensity. So whereas normal conversation in a room is say 40-60 dB, 40-60 dG is the level of shouting one needs to achieve in order to be heard at say a local pub gig. 110-140 dB is the sound of a jet engine, whereas 110-140 dG is the ear splitting levels achieved on-stage at a Foo Fighter soundcheck, which may induce involuntary head-banging and fist-waving movements if not treated.

    Bongo or Bongos are a Latin American percussion instrument consisting of a pair of single-headed, open-ended drums attached to each other. The drums are of different size: the larger drum is called the hembra (female) and the smaller the macho (male). It is most often played by hand and is especially associated in Cuban music with a steady pattern or ostinato of eighth-notes known as the martillo or "hammer". (Wiki)

    Conga, or more properly the Tumbadora, is a tall, narrow, single-headed Cuban drum with African antecedents. It is thought to be derived from the Makuta drums or similar drums associated with Afro-Cubans of Central African descent. A person who plays conga is called a conguero. Although ultimately derived from African drums made from hollowed logs, the Cuban conga is staved, like a barrel. These drums were probably made from salvaged barrels originally. They are used both in Afro-Caribbean religious music and as the principal instrument in Rumba. Congas are now very common in Latin music, including Salsa, Merengue and Reggae music as well as many other forms of popular music. (Wiki)

    ...can someone please explain the difference between a Splash and a Crash cymbal. Thanks.
