Category:Percussion instruments used as both pitched and unpitched

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a category for those percussion instruments that are commonly used both as pitched percussion and as unpitched percussion.

In some cases, such as the cowbell, individual instruments are designed for one role or the other. In others, such as the conga, it is just a matter of tuning and usage.

In practice almost any percussion instrument can be used in either role, but the vast majority are used principally in one role or the other and are classified accordingly. The cymbal, for example, is a prototypical unpitched percussion instrument, but the cup chime is a pitched cymbal.

Each article on a percussion instrument should be in exactly one of the three categories Pitched percussion, Unpitched percussion, and Percussion instruments used as both pitched and unpitched. Of the three, this should be by far the smallest category.
