Get Authentic Folk Tone With The Grover T1/SS Spanish Silver Single-Row Tambourine
One of the distinguishing features of the traditional Spanish tambourine (sometimes referred to as a Basque or â€œGypsyâ€ tambourine) are jingles that are fluted (or crinkled). This effectively controls the resonance of the instrument while at the same time adding a focused richness to the sound. The result is an instrument that has a spirited â€œfolk-likeâ€ quality. The sonority of this instrument can be called â€œgrittyâ€ and is a little less refined than Grover's modern orchestral series tambourines.
Grover has redesigned the solid Ash shell to mimic some of the vintage instruments in our collection. Replacing individual jingle slots are three wide channels which house four pairs of jingles each. This single-row instrument has a total of 24 hand-fluted silver alloy jingles. In addition, the natural skin head is slightly thicker and features a textured surface. This helps dampen the head sound while also providing an easy surface on which to play finger rolls.
Lightweight and easy to manipulate, our Spanish Silver Tambourine is perfect for pieces which call for a â€œrusticâ€ yet professional sounding tambourine. Perfect for Spanish literature like â€œLa Vida Breveâ€, â€œEspanaâ€, and â€œRapsodie Espangnolâ€, this instrument will surely add a unique and valuable color to any percussionistâ€™s sound palette!
