Whether you are rolling or playing notes, you can now have immense dynamic control from any triangle in a split second simply by jumping from one beater head to the other. In particular, this beater enables you to play or roll and achieve a true forte/piano dynamic change effortlessly. Dynamic changes in either direction…loud to soft and soft to loud are very easy. The dual heads consist of a 4.75 mm diameter front head and a rear head size of 7.75 mm diameter stacked one in front of the other. This, combined with the length 11.5 in. of the carbon fiber shaft required some thinking outside the box that turned out to be very worthwhile. The longer length also contributes to a unique feel in playing and rolling and are substantially longer than other Freer Percussion triangle beaters. Try these on Dvorak New World Symphony and you will see how musically effective, clear and quick speaking these are. Also excellent for Brahms 4.

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.
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.
