I don't know for sure but I've seen Chuck with Steve several times and have seen Chuck play hand percussion a few times. That may or may not be the case here though. If you look at the link I included on #575 of this thread, you can see him using a tambourine on his hi-hat and then removes it part way through his solo.

One thing's for sure - it's a tragedy that this has not been released on CD.
