Below are the most common Percussion instruments used in a Brass & Reed Band or Concert Band like Da Buttera. There are many, many percussion instruments both pitched and unpitched. It is by no means limited to Snare Drum, Bass Drum and Cymbals or the Drum Kit. While these would be the mainstay of any Percussion Section there are many many more instruments available and composed for. Indeed there are as many Percussion instruments in the orchestra as there are musicians! This being circa 120 musicians. There are many "toys" that are used for great effect in particular pieces of music. For example the Cannon used for Tchaikovsky's famous 1812 Overture, or a horse whip used in Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride. The possibilities are almost endless.
