Percussion Instruments

Percussion instruments make sound via struck surfaces and force, and our selection of medieval percussion instruments here at Dark Knight Armoury is no different. Not surprisingly, percussion instruments were used for both entertainment and for military purposes, and even to this day, drums are used to set marching pace, just as they were used throughout history. We offer many different styles of drums, which vary in look and style, as well in size. All of our drums, however, feature a distinctive look and feel that makes them look historic in their form, while their various sizes offer a change in sound since smaller drums are also easier to carry for marching, should you choose to use it for a more military-styled reenactment. As a side-note, all of our medieval and Renaissance drums come complete with two sticks, for easy and convenient playing. Of course, drums are not the only percussion instruments we offer, as we also carry monk bells, hand bells, sleigh bells, and crescent symbols, which utilize hand-created force to creating jingling or crashing sounds to suit your musical purposes and needs. Traditionally, percussion instruments add a level of depth to your music, and sometimes, also serve to help keep the beat. Drums, and percussion instruments of all sorts, are also quite fun to play, and that makes them a great choice to pick up in your spare time, if you want something new to learn and experience. Medieval bands and military movements alike can both stand to benefit from having some of Dark Knight Armourys percussion instruments along for the ride, and those that hear them will not disagree when they hear the strong cadence of rhythmic drumming accompanying their actions.
