To my knowledge, although percussion instruments (the family to which drums belong) are mentioned in the Old Testament, there is no specific reference to an instrument that we would think of as a drum. The closest instrument to it that I am aware of would have been the timbrel, which was a circular hand-held instrument similar to a tambourine that could have included a covering fashioned from an animal skin or similar material that could be struck with the hand to produce a drum-like sound.
