  Tuned percussion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tuned percussion is a term meant to differentiate certain percussion instruments that are meant to produce a definite pitch from the myriad others that are not.
The term tuned percussion is also used to refer to the wider class of all percussion instruments which produce a definite pitch.
Strictly speaking, the piano and the celesta are also tuned percussion instruments, because of the fact that their sound is produced by percussive means.

Percussion instruments can be divided into 2 categories: definite pitch and indefinite pitch or as Cecil Forsyth claims: "musical" and "unmusical" respectively.
The primary unmusical, eh¸ indefinite pitch percussion instruments are the snare drum (a.k.a.: side or military drum), tenor drum, tom-toms (timbales), high-hat cymbals, mounted crash cymbals and suspended cymbal.
Finally, though we shall deal with percussion instruments and keyboard percussion instruments separately, beginning percussionists in the concert band have to learn both simultaneously (thus the beginning player has to learn complicated snare drum patterns, the bass drum and usually orchestra bells).
