The drum was a member of the percussion group of musical instruments. Drums were the world's oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged.
Captain James Norrington's promotion ceremony at Fort Charles was a glittering military spectacle. Pipes and drums played as sailors and marines marched in perfect formation. Norrington's men also played the drums during Jack Sparrow's hanging. The Pelegostos Tribe often played drums, most notably when preparing a feast on their chief.
