The Drum is an Instrument that Players can use to play Shanties with in Sea of Thieves.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Every Player Pirate acquires a Drum during their Maiden Voyage, which they can use at any time during their adventures on The Sea of Thieves. The Drum can be accessed from the Equipment Radial Menu. The Cosmetic design of the Player's Drum can be switched at Equipment Chests. These designs can be purchased from Equipment Shops and only change the visual appearance of the Instrument.

Drums have one Interaction, which is to play Music! Players can take out any Instrument to start playing a Sea Shanty. The Shanty will play as long as the Player holds down the button. If a player lets go of the button and holds it down again, another Shanty will play from the start. Other Player Pirates can join in on the Shanty with instruments of their own. The first Pirate to start playing a Shanty will be the lead Instrument, playing the melody of the song. Other Pirates will then play backing to the lead instrument. When the Lead Instrument player lets go of the button, they will give the lead Instrument to another Player, who will then play the melody instead. Once the previous lead player starts playing again, they will then play backing instead.

The melody of the Drum is whistled by the Player Pirate.

Players will start to play out of tune if they are drunk with Grog. Instruments also sound muffled if Players are using them below water.

Players can acquire the Shanty of Legends from the Mysterious Stranger once they achieve the status of Pirate Legend. With the shanty, they can use their Instruments to play the tune in front of the stairs of any Tavern to gain access to the Athena's Fortune Hideout.

Variants[edit | edit source]

All new players are equipped with a basic Sailor Drum by default. Other versions are available for purchase from the Equipment Shop.
