Thanks :). So skins would just be the old school name coming from the times
when skins actually were skins.

Yeah I hate when people say kick drum. I know it provides some clarity, but to me
it sounds kind of insulting.

I wonder where the term 'tom' (let alone 'tom tom') comes from, anyway...!
...Wikipedia says:
Although "tom-tom" is the British term for a child's toy drum, the name came originally from the Anglo-Indian and Sinhala, the tom-tom itself comes from Asian or Native American cultures. The tom-tom drum is also a traditional means of communication. The tom-tom drum was added to the drum kit in the early part of the 20th century.
