The difference in response and action from carbon fiber is vast from that of a steel shaft. The carbon fiber shaft offers a small amount of flex and “whip” to the rebound and response of the beater head; this not only absorbs shock, but also aids and facilitates rolls to a large degree. You will find the feel to be very easy to roll with, and the sound to have less attack and more triangle sound than contact sound from the beater. The TBC triangle beater is the same unique teardrop shape and design as the TSSC model, but made of a custom brass alloy. The brass alloy composition makes for a beater that is a little less articulate and mellower in sound than stainless steel. The tapered front tip facilitates dynamic playing especially in soft to loud rolls. It has a soft latex rubber grip for comfort and non slip grip. The difference between the TSS and the TB models is the clarity of sound. Both sound great on any triangle. I personally use the stainless version as my general beater, and the brass version for more legato and blending parts.
The TTS tam tam beater is smaller and slightly lighter than the old version. Measuring in at 16" length (406mm) with a head size of 5.12" diameter and 15.9 oz (452g) this version is now a much more versatile mallet for a wider variety of tam tam sizes and dynamics.
Lightest model clear bright clean sound that cuts and very easy to get around chimes during fast/busy parts. Easy to play with four mallets. Super clean and clear sound, no contact no "tick" to the sound at all. 12.5" long.
Has hefty brass insert inside for more weight than CH1 and slightly more mellow tone. Excellent general all around chime hammer. Super clean and clear sound, no contact no "tick" to the sound at all. 12.5" long
Most mellow and round sound of them all yet still just hard enough to cut through. Perfect for exposed solo notes or even soft notes with a lot of bottom and fundamental to the pitch. One grade softer than the brown linen phenolic. Super clean and clear sound, no contact no "tick" to the sound at all. 12.5" long.
My triangle clip was designed out of necessity like all of my products. After so many years in the Cleveland Orchestra using a variety of triangle clips it became clear to me as to what would be the ideal triangle clip. I came up with my own unique custom design unlike anything else.
Heavier larger and bolder than others with a more powerful sound yet still warm and round. Excellent general all around chime hammer for those who need more power to cut through all the time. Tremendous fundamental and clear pitch. Super clean and clear sound, no contact no "tick" to the sound at all. 12.5" long.
