black swamp spectrum tear drop triangle beater

Black Swamp Spectrum Tear Drop Triangle Beater

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...

Great fo musical playing!

Comments:

The well-made beater allows for subtle crescendos and diminuendos with no real effort. The tone produced is full and luxurious. Loud rolls might be difficult, however, so plan accordingly.

Great beater, but probably a little pricey

Comments:

I like this beater quite a bit. I think the balance offered by gripping it right where the shaft and rubber meet is very nice. The price is probably a bit high, but that doesn't make the beater any worse.

Nice beater

Comments:

Using this on a Grover Super Overtone triangle in non symphonic music and the bronze beater head makes this triangle sound very nice.

Great beater

Comments:

Another great BSP product. Greatly facilitates dynamic shading, especially for the ubiquitous crescendo roll.

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.
