Beaters and drummers

Drummers mainly use sticks brushes or mallets

To play the drums and cymbals.

Sticks and mallets give the loudest sound, while brushes are quiet.

Ride cymbal

This cymbal is often played with a stick to produce a “riding” rhythm.

Crash cymbal

This cymbal as its name suggests, gives a resounding crash. When struck with a stick, and can be used to mark a dramatic climax in a piece of music. The crash cymbal is

suspended from an adjustable stand.

Floor tom

This large tom-tom gives a deep resonant note.

The drummer may use mallets to play the tom-toms or strike them with the palms of the hands.
