The data field has always shown 24 internally. To prettify the math, many people referred to this as a 2.4 modifier (multiplier) over what you'd do if you didn't have the instrument equipped, which we take as a baseline of 1 or 100%. This is equivalent to adding a modifier of 140% to what you'd do if you didn't have the instrument equipped, i.e., 2.4 is 240% of 1, or ((1 x 100%) + 140% [what we show]) of 1.
11 damage on furfils chant 26 with this drum
My 2cp, opinions are welcome to differ from mine.
Sinfonian of the 43rd song and climbing fast (two levels last night in TD swarming spirocs). Next up Wyverns in CS!
1) I would love it if Verant turned this drum into a "basic" hand drum that way when I go to ToV and play my AE magic fire and cold resist song I will only get +45 to each of them instead of +100 as I do with this drum now. Having that kind of a buff on my guild mates is unwanted, they would all prefer to die.
2) From level 42 to 52 I went on countless Naggy and Vox raids (too many to count). But since I was never lucky enough to roll a 1000 on a /random 1 1000 I guess I have not "earned" this drum as opposed to the warrior who did roll a 996. I guess he earned it. Too bad he is going to sell it in the bazaar to bard who has not earned it.

And there was pece.
I can't vouch for the accuracy but it gives a rough idea on percentage of improvement with the instrument.
Drum of the beast is much better then Selo's, about 5% better, and allows weilding a weapon.
Cantata of Soothiing - requires string
Melody of Ervaj- requires brass
Shauri's Sonorous Clouding- requires wind
Singdarra now level 30
OK... first write down your stats.... Str, Sta, Agi, Dex, Wis, Int, Cha and resists. Second: Dump all the buffs that some caster has put on you... the best time to do this test is when you are waiting for a rez cause you are naked and nothing will confuse your stats. Third: Sing your very first song... Level one... Chant of Battle... you all have it. Now.. LOOK at how many points this song adds to your STR, your DEX and your AC. NOW... equip the silly lil 'Drum' you can buy in every bard guild in Norrath. Start singing your lvl 1 song again. LOOK at how many points this DRUM with this SONG adds to your stats. NEXT... pick a different drum... maybe the MistMoore drum and equip it and start singing the song again!!! LOOK at your stats and how much they have increased. If you have ever had an algebra class you will know how to do the math on calculating percentages.
Write it Down...........
***My stats at Level 55 were as follows:
My naked STR stat: 118
My STR while singing Chant of Battle (CoB): 136
My STR with CoB with Nostrolo's Tamborine: 157
My STR with CoB with Walrus Skin Drum: 159
If 118 is 100% of my STR without anything added then 136 is 115%of my STR or an increase of 15% with just the song added; then 157 is 133% (based on my original naked stat) or an 18% increase by equipping my Nostrolo's tamborine; then 159 is 135% and only a 2% increase by using the Walrus Skin Drum.
SO in conclusion: the song alone adds 15%, the Nostrolo's Tamborine adds 18% to the value of the song and the Walrus Skin Drum adds 20% to the value of the song. There is only a 2% difference in what the Tamborine and the WSDrum add to your song. Voila.
SOOOOO when someone says that Nostrolo's tamborine adds 23% to your song.. tell them bah humbug... It adds 18%.
***These numbers change with levels and are simply a short explanation to this calcuation. For an extremely accurate reflection of an instruments %, I suggest you test all the percussion songs, and do these calculations for each stat affected by the particular song then finding an average once you have all of your testing done.
Selo's vs Sharkskin: 5% difference, Selo's is faster
Basically, the major drums ingame, in order of worst to best:
MM Drums (17%), Tamborine (23%), Sharkskin (30%), Selo's (35%), Drums of the Beast (Over 35%, not sure what % exactly)
You say you did not notice a difference when switching between them, try starting song up with your sharkskin drums in an enclose area, say FV tunnels, while running, switch to Selo's drums and you will see a marked improvement.
Raced another bard of a higher level last night, I had my selo's drums, he had sharkskin, raced from the wizzy spires in DL to the druid spires, and although he was RED to me, I still smoked him.
Not to mention the bonus you get to your DoT percussion songs (chants).
The catch...i was running backwards.
Now that I have these drums....he really isnt gonna like me. =)
I think a store bought drum is enough if its only use is to compete with some druid or others...
A good drum can be used for resist songs on dragon raids for example (or for chant kitting, etc)
