Which percussion instrument??

Hello, what percussion is in this finger eleven song “one thing”? It’s the percussion that’s like a thunderous heartbeat. Is it a timpani?thanks.ob1

Just because they put tympani in the video doesn't mean there's tympani in the song. There isn't. In the verses there's bass drum. In the chorus there are very dead toms and super processed snare.

Tympani have defined pitch and a lot of resonance. The polar opposite of the sounds in that song.

What was said above. I almost started laughing when the timpani set showed up in the video.
