Grover Standard Temple Blocks with Stand - Product Information

Free Double Braced Stand with the purchase of the The Grover Pro "Open Tone" temple blocks. Grover has these blocks hand-crafted in the USA using high quality Russian birch. Grover mindfully chose Russian birch for its great strength, durability, and resonant sound characteristics. Each temple block is not only graduated in size, but tuned so that each set is tonally matched for optimum sonority. These temple blocks have a full, focused sound. The quality is very consistent, creating a set of temple blocks that is truly a benchmark of craftsmanship.

Every set of our temple blocks includes a robust "quick release" multi-clamp that will allow you to securely mount your Grover Pro temple blocks on any vertical type of stand, such as a cymbal stand or concert tom stand. Machined from aircraft grade aluminum, our mounting clamp is the strongest on the market, bar none.

Grover Pro is the only company offering eight graduated temple block sizes. Our "standard" set is perfect for most applications and consists of five graduated sizes. Our unique bass set of 3 large blocks extends the range downward from our standard set. The bass set is sold individually so that players who already own standard size temple blocks can extend the range of their temple block setup.

This special offer includes free double braced stand.

Comments:

I did a lot of comparisons before settling yet again on my favourite orchestral percussion brand for this temple block set. A great collection of five useful tones using traditional birch wood, which to my ears has the best resonant properties. It's a "boring" wood and looks "unfinished", but the fancier woods and/or finishes diminish the focus of the attack and pitch, and the harmonic richness, and tend to be too reverberant. Make sure to have a 3/16" hex key (Allen wrench) handy for tightening each block to the bar, as they can arrive a bit loose. I tried the metric equivalent and it wasn't quite as tight of a fit so I think these are using English units. The stand is a nice dedicated design with a great attachment for the bar. This dramatically improves the ergonomics of playing this set. Now I just need to find the new set of three bass pitches that Grover added this year, and see if they readily attach to the same stand.

Good tone. Nice resonance. Small blemishes in actual wood grain. Well made. Very sturdy stand!
