A cylinder is a long, thin shape where the ends are circles. Any cross-section of a cylinder at right angles to its outer surface is also a circle. Long cylinders are also known as tubes.

Cymbals are a modern percussion instrument. They are found on every modern drum kit, and you can clearly hear them in rock and pop music made any time in the last 50 years.
