    Can anyone tell me - is there an acoustic percussion instrument that sounds anything like the "handclaps" sound you get on a drum machine?

    I believe whacking the palms of your hands together does something like that.

    Some whips will sound like that, and as has already been stated - a good clapper could do it too!

    Why not just use a drum machine? (I have done before....and synthesisers for wind / thunder / storms etc etc)....or are you somewhere without power (and even then it's not impossible).
     
  6. There is a plastic hand clapper you can buy and you shake it. I personally don't think it sounds very realistic though.
