How to use "Membranophone" in context?

A membranophone is a musical instrument that uses a membrane to produce sound. The membranophone is similar to a theremin in that both instruments use a long, thin, flexible metal arm to pluck strings. However, the membranophone uses a wetting agent to create a oscillating sound rather than a direct contact with the strings. Membranophones can be played acoustically or electronically.
