What are the diffrent type of drums called?

Lets see, on a traditional 5-piece drum set you have the 1. Bass Drum - it sits on the floor and you kick it with a pedal to make it sound. 2. Snare drum - sits usually between your legs and has a line of beads underneath that rattle when you hit it to produce a short military type sound. 3. Toms(2) - attached to the bass drum and are similar to the snare except there are no beads on the bottom- it sounds much clearer, they are used for fills. 4. Floor tom - just like the toms that are attached to the bass drum, but it has it's own stand and is much bigger and has a much deeper tone. I hope you were talking about a drum set, because if you were talking about hand drums, it's a whole different ball game.
