Every Percussionist Should Own This Triangle

Comments:

This is hands down the best general purpose triangle I have ever played. I think every percussionist should have one of these, and if you are looking for a triangle to buy to enter the world of professional level equipment, this is the one to go with. The sound is full-bodied and clear, and importantly is non-distinct enough that it doesn't really clash with any musical styles. At all dynamics and playing styles, this instrument still sounds good. If you're considering different options and you've come to the reviews to help you make your decision, stop - this is the one right here, you don't need to look any further. If you're debating between this and Wagner-Mahler version of this triangle I have tried both. They are both very similar sounding so you could really go either way. I felt the Wagner-Mahler was a TOUCH deeper than the Symphonic version. The online description for that one mentions you could use it for heavier playing, but honestly the Symphonic version is such a beast already I have never run into a situation where I truly NEEDED anything more, which leaves me questioning why the Wagner-Mahler one exists. I think I personally like the lighter (but still full) sound of the Symphonic triangle, but I wouldn't say the other option is a bad choice. Like I said, they're very similar.

More tonal than I like; limited uses

Comments:

Having heard an older Abel triangle owned by a colleague and generally liking the sound, I bought one hoping to replicate what I heard. Unfortunately, the modern Abel triangles I've heard are too tonal for my liking, offering limited overtones and complexity of sound. I've used it in a pops concert or two, but my other triangles get much more use.

Beautifully made - offering a variety of sounds

Comments:

Beautiful construction and offers a variety of sounds depending on where struck. I purchased this to add unique sounds to some rock/blues tunes.

Alan Abel 6

Comments:

This triangle has a very pure, bell like sound. If striking a triangle reminds you of the sound you get when hitting the edge of a coffee mug, this triangle sounds like you are striking very fine china. Excellent accent sound for any fantasy music score.
