I guess the symphonic orchestra! Haha!

Other than that, probably the piano, too.

My intuition would say that a piano is not a typical percussion instrument. In my view percussion instruments are not only defined by how they are played, but by the fact that they usually don't produce a definite tone, but a complex sound. Now I'm thinking about marimbas etc though, and there went my wisdom..........

Tenor Sax, Organ, or Upright Bass. I prefer them all together, but I like them Separately too.

The piano is not usually thought of as a percussion instrument because it never seems to be in the back in the percussion section. But it is indeed percussion since as I stated before it has hammers that hit the strings, not pluck them. Think of the hammers as drum sticks hitting strings. A series of fulcrums and levers connect the keys to the hammers. Just as you have fulcrum in your joints moving the body parts and the sticks.

Saxophone, vibraphone, bagpipes, piano(technically also a percussion instrument), concertina, pan flutes, the vocal chords as used by patton, keenan, or Bjork. An exceptional harpist is also amazing

I have heard it but wouldn't really consider myself familiar.

As someone that loves Cello you'd obviously be familiar with Apocalyptica.

Well i started out on piano when i was a kid. But my heart will always be with the bass. I played it in bands for years and just love the sound of it.

Hard question cause there is so much wonderful sounding musical instruments out there. I`m going with the piano cause a great piano piece played in a church or a big hall etc is breathtaking.
