I suppose bongos would be the highest of the head drums (membranophones) and the bass drum or largest tympani the lowest.

In the keyboards, orchestra bells would be considered the highest and marimba the lowest.

I'm relating this to the traditional band/orchestra so if you are referring to some exotic instrument, who knows.

Not sure what this relates to. Kind of a silly question to ask of a student from a teacher in my opinion, since percussion are not usually thought of as "highest" or "lowest" pitch. This sounds like a question from a teacher to a student. We get a lot of these.

I would say that the highest is the snare drum and the lowest would be the "dinner bell". If you are stuck playing a percussion instrument that only has two or three appearances in the music, I would suggest a little practice and a renewed dedication to music.

Well, I liked the questions about what is the best essay writing service you have raised in your article. I also don’t know much about music instrument so that is why I can’t comment on this thing. Since I believe we should stay quiet if we don’t know about something. But it will be fun to know the right answer.

It's not easy to be a percussionist since it takes a lot of training to hit an instrument with the perfect amount of quality, in the place and at the time. Quick Step Master Installer
