  Tsuzumi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tsuzumi (tsoo zoo mee) (鼓) is a Japanese hourglass-shaped drum that was originally taught with fox skin.
When played with its bigger counterpart, the Otsuzumi (O tsoo zoo mee), the tsuzumi is referred to as the Kotsuzumi (Ko tsoo zoo mee), or "small tsuzumi." The Otsuzumi is simultaneously known as the Okawa (O kah wah).
It looks very much like the Tsuzumi, except that the Okawa is played on the side instead of on the shoulder, and it produces a higher, sharper sound.
