Bluegrass percussion instruments?


Junior Member
Okay well I know that in some songs you would use a light drum set for an occasional bluegrass song but what are other good percussion instruments that I could use for other bluegrass songs? I'm open to any kind of percussive instrument or like a homemade whatever. washboard, wooden box etc. Tell me what you know.

Just a snare drum, and brushes. Jaw harp. Washboard (wear thimbles on your fingertips). Ye old ceramic jug. Spoons (at the Renn. Faire - made of wood - sometimes called bones). Those are the instruments I've played, over the years. Oh, last but not least, stompin' the ol' boot to the floorboards.
