If you can only buy one triangle, consider this

Comments:

Sabian is doing great work with their band and orchestra range, cymbals and beyond. Their 6" HH triangle is an excellent instrument. As others have noted, it is on the thinner side, so that raises two considerations: 1) you probably won't be using this one for loud, robust playing; several companies make good, thicker triangles that can do that job, and 2) the instrument is very susceptible to influence from the suspension material. I think it's important to note what your triangle is hanging from and how much that suspension material might be dampening the sound. One of the worst offenders was the Wang triangle clip that used a braided metal suspension, but I've seen other clips using thick line or even thin rope seriously affecting the sound. It's entirely possible there's great variation between individual triangles in this product line, but I would suggest anybody unhappy about the sound of their instrument try a few other suspension methods, particularly beaded loop ties, to minimize surface contact and therefore the effect on the sound of the triangle. That said, I reach for this triangle all the time in the symphony, and it always sounds wonderful.

It's good, but not when you play it

Comments:

Triangles are interesting in that they sound VERY different out in the hall compared to when they're right next to your face when you are playing it. That being said, it sounds awful when I play it, but people constantly complimented the sound it was producing when they listened to it from the hall. That being said, its a serious option for a 6" triangle, but not exactly my cup of tea.

Amazing for the price

Comments:

You can of course get better triangles than this, but you'll be spending far more. To get a bit of a better sound you can get a Matt Nolan or Grover pro triangle and spend about double. Buddy and Thein triangles are very amazing sounding and cost $500-800.

Thin sound

Comments:

Lets face it, hammered bronze triangles are all the rage right now, and this is the lowest priced one, so it seems like a great deal. These triangles sound very thin. There is no comparison to the Thein triangles, which produce a huge shimmering sound, the Sabian sounds dull. I've played them side by side, it's not even close. If you're looking for a professional hammered triangle, pay bit more and go for another brand, you will get much better results. The Matt Nolan triangles are a significant step up. The rod on this triangle is very thin, other manufactures would classify this as a light triangle.

Fantastic instrument

Comments:

This triangle is a beautiful musical instrument. The sound is bright, warm, shimmering, and loaded with overtones. I have played this and the Abel triangle back to back and these were my observations: they both offer a very nice sound. The Abel sound is more bell-like with fewer overtones. The Sabian possesses a much fuller overtones spectrum. But it is also capable of playing more bell-like pitched tones (like the Abel) if you strike it at a 90 degree angle to the plane, or parallel to the floor. It is ultra versatile and is capable of every sound imaginable. This is definitely worth a purchase. But I do recommend that you find a recording of it, or better actually play it in person, since the choice of triangle relies heavily on personal preference.
