    Thanks to this post I purchased Percussion Kit and must say that is a well-stocked percussion library. SPK features a great variety of instruments in several different categories.
    The Orchestral Percussion section is awesome (Snare Rolls, Timpani and suspended Cymbals are offered here with a great sound). Also: Triangles, Tambourines, Woodblocks can be found in the Auxiliary Percussion category, while Mallet Percussion is perfect for me: Vibraphone (breathtakingly exquisite), Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Marimba and Tubular bells.
    Finally, a Latin Percussion section and an African Percussion Kit also are good options for these rythms.
