6. Larger Drums

Larger drums are those that stand on feet or can be attached to a stand and are usually too big to be hand-held. The most important of these large drums in Latin American music is the conga. These drums are of Afro-Cuban origin and wooden Congas are usually made by joining together separate wooden staves (early congas may have been made from salvaged barrels). Modern congas are made from wood or fibreglass and are cylindrical in shape, bulging outwards like a barrel. They are often about 72 cm high, with a batter head on the top of the drum. Some conga drums have carved feet to
SustainA general term with various specific meanings in music/audio production: 1) In general terms, how well an instrument's sound persists once played. 2) The third part of the ADSR envelope used by many synthesisers, Sustain ('S') determines to what volume a note decays after it is triggered, but before the key is released. (Decay 'D' controls how fast this happens) 3) The piano pedal which removes the dampers from the strings, so that notes will continue to sound even after the keys have been released. This is implemented in MIDI as a specific message with 2 possible values: 127 (pedal down) and 1 (pedal up).

them off the floor. Congas may also be belt-worn, but this is unusual because of their size and weight.

Professionals may also use a variety of sizes of drums, the commonest three being the quinto (smallest), conga and tumba (largest). The drums are played with the hands and fingers, and a variety of sounds can be created including
BassThe lowest part of the audio frequency range; in popular music, a (generally) rhythmic, low frequency melodic line emphasising the root notes of the chord progression.

tones, open sounds, muted tones and slaps, but many variations can be created by a skilled conguero (conga drummer). No longer reserved for Latin music, congas have found their way into contemporary pop too.

Steel drums, the national instrument of Trinidad and its famous carnival celebration, were developed around 1940 from discarded oil drums. Hammering the bottom of the drums created an inward depression with curved sound surfaces, each with distinct pitches, and a unique

DispersionDispersion defines how a speaker spreads its sound both horizontally and vertically and is an important element in speaker design. With low frequencies sound is dispersed over a wide angle as the wavelength is generally much larger than the speaker. As the frequency increases and the speaker becomes larger than the wavelength the opposite occurs and the dispersion becomes narrower.

Timbales have a very distinct and cutting sound. They are important instruments in Latin American music and have also gained a foothold in reggae. Timbales are tightly tuned single-headed metal drums played with thin, lightweight sticks to accentuate their overtones. Because of their cutting
