Black Swamp Spectrum Tear Drop Triangle Beater - Product Information

The newest member of the Spectrum triangle beater family is an end weighted, tear-drop style beater. The playing surface measures 1 5/8" long, tapering to 1/8" and is precisely machined from the same bronze alloy as the original Spectrum beater series. The seamless taper provides the possibility for multiple dynamics from a single beater, and helps execute more consistent, fuller sounding rolls. In turn, the bronze end naturally produces a warm, lush tone.

Great on triangle but easy to bend

Comments:

I think this beater sounds great on my Abel and Grover Bronze triangles. I'd give it five stars except for one drawback: I easily bent the heck out of it playing bell tree. I mostly do pit work and need beaters to be multiple purpose. No doubt some readers will think I'm nuts for using this rather expensive beater in that capacity, but I've used Stoessels for years and never experienced a problem. So five stars for straight triangle playing, but I recommend you not use it for multi work.

Beautiful beater

Comments:

The handle is very long and feels good. The head is a brilliant brass that sounds absolutely amazing on an Abel triangle. Allows you to make many different sounds while maintaining integrity of overall sound quality.

Good, but sticking with Stoessel

Comments:

This is a very nice beater and obviously made with quality in mind, but I think it might be a bit overpriced. I admire that they went for something that could deliver a wide range of sounds. Comparing it back-to-back with Stoessel, I think having a set of the later is a better option. For my money, I think the versatility in having a light, medium, and heavy set of Stoessels gives nearly the full spectrum of triangle sounds, where this all-in-one approach doesn't make as much sense. That said, it's a beautiful striker and highly recommended as an addition to a Stoessel set.

So good!

Comments:

This is a tasty, tasty beater. Delivers a very pure sound with lots of delicious overtones. Adapts well to rolls and more articulate playing. Excellent.

Good beaters

Comments:

These not only sound great in symphonic play with my 6" Abel, they look beautiful and feel good in my hands. I like the extra length of the handles.
