The Giant Drum is an object used to get over large pits in the hog levels of Crash Bandicoot. If the player does not jump or jumps too early, hitting the giant drum will kill the player. If the player jumps too late, Crash and his hog will fall down the pit. Each of these ways will make the player lose a life, or, if the life count is at 0, initiate a game over. The skin on the drums are colored tan and the base of the drums are black and blue.
