A good start

Comments:

This isn't a great tambourine. The head is thin and detracts from the overall balance of the instrument and pulls from the shell fairly easily due to seasonal changes. The jingles are dry and quiet, but lack tone. The shell looks (and probably is) cheap in all ways. It's worth the price, but no more. I have 2 of these. Quality is consistent, but the head and shell dimensions are very different aside from diameter. However, after replacing the jingles with Grover HT copper on one and Grover bronze on the other and replacing the heads, both tambourines have turned into wonderful concert tambourines. I got the idea from a few professionals who have put new jingles in cheap drums. The cheap shells are wonderfully light weight, making the tambourines incredibly sensitive. All said and done, I have spent $80 on each and gotten tambs that rival Grover and black swamp drums.

Wonderful Tambourine!

Comments:

I really love this great tambourine. I use it mostly for accompanying guitar/singing/etc. It is a great tight head that is responsive enough to get some really great thumb rolls out of it. If I didn't know better I would guess it to be a $50-$100 tambourine. It is not too loud to play in a small room or practice space. I tested a number of headless tambourines but all were too loud, clunky, and unresponsive to smaller movements--and lacked the versatility of the calfskin head. would recommend!
