Black Sabbath - Children of the grave

From this song what is the name of the instrument that starts playing at 0:49 and sounds more prominent at 1:05 to 1:10

It seems like a drum but dont know of what kind

i dont know the name and i just want to find more content about this specific instrument


I think that's a Timable played with hands, and recorded badly! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gd2-qjVH_DI

  • sound kind of like the same, and it could be a valid point that maybe was badly recorded i was already thinking like some of those drums that they use on a marching band those that the drummer wear like some kind of vest and has like 5 drums atached – TamalesRancheros Apr 4 at 21:28

Scroll down a bit to see the pic of his kit in the 70’s.

Hope this helps.
