What drum/percussion sound is this?

The opening bars of this track, wondering if they're (heavily reverbed) toms:

Or, similar thing going on here, also in the intro:

Any help much appreciated, I'd like to know where to start!

Sounds to me like tymbales. Single headed drums most of the times with shells made of steel or brass. High tuned and single plied skins like Ambassadors and no damping.

Timbales! I never thought they could sound so deep and "big". Guess no damping and a very specific reverb. Thanks.

conga and timbale. Timbales rim is tuned to conga bass so they sound like the same drum. I do this with all my drums, so any combination of them sound like a single instrument

That sounds to me like an awesome tip. So if I were to look around for a percussionist to do a little groove based on that link I posted, this would be the way to go, right?
"Timbales rim tuned to conga bass" I want to incorporate that as a motif played over some drums and need to find someone who can play that.

You wouldn't happen to know someone who would be able to record a short two minute groove/solo in the kind of style we're talking about, would you?
