SampleOddity has released Peculiar Percussion, a free sample library.

I bet you probably like to use actual instruments when making music… objects designed expressly to produce sounds. But the whole world is a percussion instrument! Even the most mundane objects can add a unique tonal color to your compositions. Those same objects, when manipulated digitally, explode into a whole new set of tones and textures! Peculiar Percussion is a collection of random objects with untapped musical potential.
