For the track, "Attack," I am not entirely certain if that is a tamborine. If it is, it shouldn't be, not if Zimmer intended it to be ethnically accurate. I do know there is a similar japanese instrument that it may have been, although its name eludes me at this moment. You are right, however, in that it really adds to the music.
