Drums produce notes.

You can create music with drums.

Therefore it is an instrument.

They are both, I think. At least that's what I've always known.

Drums as a string instrument?

Strings are used on some drums to tighten or loosen them to get a different pitch.

But would I consider them a string instrument? Probably not........

I always thought keyboard instruments were a class of their own...
