What's that weird percussion noise Frank Zappa always uses in his synclavier compositions?

Could you please be more specific and/or provide an example?

There's two sounds there, claves (the higher, softer one) and what sounds like a ratchet (but could also be just drumsticks hitting a wooden plank).

It sounds like a passive rattle to me rather than a played one, by which I mean the difference between a maraca rattle and a single stroke drum roll.

You probably mean near the end? That's the sound of a hammond organ. It has a very percussive attack and since the notes are very short, there's not much left of the warm sustained sound one normally associates with the hammond organ.

It's been a while I heard that track... I never really liked it but it sounded fresh to me now.
