    Hi folks. A slightly off-centre question, if you don't mind....

    This is a section of a piece of music of mine, put together using an early version of Kontakt. But I'm wondering, how would you describe the main high-pitched drum sound in this snippet? Temple Drum? Hi-Tom? It's not really cowbell, but...

    Any guesses?

    Just to clarify which drum sound you mean:

    Can you post a timestamp of the sound in the snippet? Or an additional shorter snippet where you can only hear this single drum sound?

    I can ear some generic sticks, an Indian tabla and a triangle.

    solger, not the triangle or high bell sound, but the constant rhythmic sound that's sort-of half-way between a cowbell and a kalimba. At 10 seconds it's joined by another sparser low-pitched marimba sound, but it's the higher sound I'm interested in. Some sort of sample, but is it a drum? Is it metal?

    And yes, maybe there will be a prize, airflamesred....!

    Not sure if this might be some kind of wooden (or bamboo?) sticks. Or maybe a stick hitting a dampened bell ...
