Abstract

Following the probable order of their appearance in history, all instruments may be placed under three general heads: Percussion instruments, wind instruments, and stringed instruments.

The percussion instruments are further divided into two distinct groups: Instruments with indefinite pitch and instruments with definite pitch.

The mallet instruments are actually a group of definite pitch instruments with vibrating wood or metal plates. They are further divided according to tonal features.
