    Other than EQ, what sometimes works is eliminating the center channel of the recording. This is FAR from perfect, but you can sometimes achieve good results, depending on the recording.

    Just as with vocal removal, you will sometimes end up with artifacts that you'll have to EQ out to the best of your abilities. This can sometimes be easier than removing them with just EQ. Also be aware that you MIGHT remove some other sounds that you didn't want to remove. You'll have to experiment.

    Another thing you can try (which works REALLY well) is to apply bandpass filters to the sample. This technique allows you to better isolate the frequencies you want to keep, while completely removing those you want to get rid of. As in the above tip, you'll have to experiment, and the outcome will be dependent upon the recording you're working with.
