Black Sabbath - Children of the grave

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 don't know of what kind.

I don't know the name and I just want to find more content about this specific instrument.


I think that's a timbale played with hands, and recorded badly!

  • 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 Apr 4 '20 at 21:28

I'm pretty sure they are concert toms. Concert toms were toms that were used a lot in the 70’s - they only have drum heads on one side (the batter side), not on the resonant side, so they sound quite different to normal toms. It looks like he also has an octoban in his setup; scroll down a bit to see the pic of his kit in the 70’s.

Hope this helps.
