Lucknow Drum 3D Model
Before they were used widely for music, drums were traditionally used for signalling on battlefields. This drum is the Regimental bass drum which was in use at the Siege of Lucknow in 1857. The noise of a battlefield would have made the use of drums for signalling important, as they could be heard over the din of battle. They were however shortly after this, taken out of use on the battlefield in favour of the bugle, which was easier to carry. The drum is painted with the Royal Coat of Arms, as well as the battle honours of the 32nd Regiment of Foot. The drum, made of wood, with animal hide skins, would have been played with large drumsticks. The drum would have been worn attached to a strap around the neck of the drummer so the soldier could walk whilst carrying it.
