The nambino is a popular Antharian percussion instrument that draws its design from the steel shipyard drums of the Port of Marba. Its thundering staccato notes amplify as they resonate through the four apertures (or "nambs") of the drum casing, creating a droning overtone.

In the Z'Orchestra, the nambinos are positioned in the front row, between the violins on the left and the mianos on the right. The Gederaglinis are at the hind.
