Musical Instruments in Samavsaran, Panch Kalyanak vis-a-vis Human celebrations

We come to know that around 12.5 crore musical instruments are played in a samavsaran. With them being of different types such as percussion, wind etc.

Are any of these instruments played by demigods made of animal skin?

Now if we say that these instruments don’t involve animal skin then do the instruments used in human celebrations of Tirthankar bhagwaan’s life events such as Janma kalyanak during the 4th Era etc. involve usage of Tabla, Dholak, Mridang, Pakhavaj made from animal hides/skin?

Since ancient times did not have such industrial production of metal or steel or aluminium that we have today hence it is all the more probable that they used animal skin/hides in some of their percussion instruments.
