I think you mean instrumentation, not timbre.


tim·bre
ˈtambər/Submit
noun
the character or quality of a musical sound or voice as distinct from its pitch and intensity.
"trumpet mutes with different timbres"
synonyms:   tone, sound, sound quality, voice, voice quality, color, tone color, tonality, resonance
"the timbre of the reeds"

guiro




trumpet, maybe with a mute?


#2 has something else with the trumpet.  Maybe a sax?


#3 is a trumpet with a harmon mute, no stem.  I wonder if #1 is the trumpet with harmon mute, with stem then.




Is this salsa?

So bongos?

I hear a shaker egg in there too.




And a piano in #1?


Something tapping.  Could be the guiro being tapped.  Or a cowbell... haha.


#3 sounds more like a drum set (snare) with wire brushes.  So maybe not a shaker egg.

I'm going to guess...

It's all one recording, same group, same piece.

Trumpet with harmon mute, with or without stem.
Sax
piano

Less confident, but it's something close to this...
drum set, wire brushes for some.  No snare (so not bongos).
Shaker egg
Guiro
I'm not sure how many percusisonists that is.... Three?  Shaker, guiro, drum set (no snare, and hitting the cowbell attached)?  Maybe four percussionists?  It's harder to tell.
