Can anyone identify the percussion sound from the song "Hard to Concentrate" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is from their 2006 album Stadium Arcadium.

I have not yet been able to figure out what that sound is... any ideas?

I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I can't believe I haven't seen them in concert. Time and money not matching up.

Sounds like a regular ol' drumset played with hands, or brushes, or nylon "rods."

Other people here are way more knowledgeable about frequencies, but it sounds like a very serious EQ job on them, as well.
