A fish-drum or pao pei is a traditional Chinese instrument.

It is composed of a long cylinder, often of bamboo, over one end of which is stretched a piece of prepared fish skin or snakeskin. Two items that resemble projecting golf clubs are the ends of long slips of bamboo used as castanets.

Elder Zhang Guo, one of the Eight Immortals, is sometimes depicted holding one.
