Entry from British & World English dictionary
An instrument in which the sound is produced by a stretched membrane, such as a drum.
- But you can also sub-divide the membranophones in a different way; by considering their physical construction.
- It is not a membranophone like other drums because it does not have anything stretched over it, like a skin or paper.
- Drums are examples of membranophones, and cultures from all over the world have created different types of drums.
