 Percussion instrument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Percussion instruments play not only rhythm, but also melody and harmony, and percussion could also be the only category of instruments that has musical notation in all three of the traditional clefs (treble, bass and rhythm- though sometimes bass clef is simply substituted for rhythm clef).
Percussion is commonly referred to as "the backbone" or "the heartbeat" of a musical ensemble, often working in close collaboration with bass instruments, when present.
Because percussion covers such a diverse range of musical styles, rhythms, melodies and harmonies, percussion virtuosi are often some of the most widely skilled and accomplished musicians in the music industry.

 "A Sweet Shrill Voice": The Countertenor and Vocal Scoring in Tudor England
It could, of course, be taken to mean that the two-octave range it refers to applied to that of all the lay-clerks, including the bass voice (i.e., from the lowest written note of the bass part (F) to the highest note (f') of the countertenor part).
Underlining this is the evidence of the written ranges, which shows little change to accommodate the new breed of castratos: in Sistine music after 1565, although the soprano upper range occasionally becomes higher (from f" to g"), the overall compass of the voices does not increase.
The reasons for this downward shift in the range of the uppermost part were largely bound up in religious aesthetics, reflecting the new desire to avoid aural opulence and encourage simplicity and comprehensibility [17] Otherwise, a comparison of columns (b) and (c) in ex.

 The Thumper - Throat Microphone by VOCOMOTION
When you amplify vocal percussion with just one mic, you're expecting that one microphone element to pickup a wide range of frequencies, and then process these frequencies all in the same way.
Released in January 2000, The Thumper (formerly TH60) has been used for vocal percussion, beatboxing, singing bass, or making really cool throat sounds.
A better way to amplify vocal percussion is to use two separate microphones (one for your mouth and one for your throat) and filter the unwanted frequencies from each.

 Chanticleer Christmas coming to the Barclay 11/22/01
"We're an a cappella male vocal ensemble that makes use of the entire singing range of soprano, alto, tenor, bass, performing a repertoire that's wide and varied," explained Joseph Jennings, artistic director of Chanticleer since 1984.
Jennings claimed that what makes Chanticleer stand out from other all-male vocal ensembles is its relationship with its audiences.
Founded in 1978 by the late Louis Botto, who sang in several Bay Area choirs and asked men in those groups to join him for a new all-male ensemble, Chanticleer was created with the Renaissance sound in mind.

 Basses in Bach's Vocal Works
Although the `basse noble' has been distinguished from the `basso profondo' in terms of its greater flexibility and lighter tone, qualities it shares with the `basse chantante,' comparison of the `basse noble' with the `basse chantante' in range should be avoided.
Over time the bass voice has been subdivided into a number of distinct categories: the `basso profondo' or `basse noble' refers to a particularly low bass, the `basse chantante' (or `basso cantate') a higher, lyrical voice, and the 'basso buffo' a comic bass.
A special genre for the bass voice was the `rage aria,' cultivated even in the oratorio volgare where it was characteristically sung by such figures as Lucifer and Herod.
