Once a military drum, timpanis have become a staple of the percussion section in the classical orchestra. Also known as kettledrums, timpanis have also found many places in modern music, including concert, marching, and even rock bands. Timpanists play the timpani by striking the head with a timpani stick or mallet, but percussionists can use various techniques for creating unique sound effects on the timpani.
