Meinl Concert Percussion
Is there any percussion instrument as misunderstood as the humble triangle? To the uninitiated, it seems simple... but an experienced musician knows that striking angle, force and position can all make a huge difference in its sound, making it a surprisingly challenging piece of percussion to master. There are a few different varieties here, like the Meinl Universal Triangle, Bill Saragosa Liquid Triangle and Meinl Brass Triangle. For a complete concert percussion setup, these are some instruments not to be missed!
You'll also want to check out Meinl's symphonic cymbals, and there are plenty to look at, from the Symphonic Suspended Cymbal to the Meinl Symphonic Thin Cymbal Pair. These instruments need no introduction, just like other classics such as the Artisan Edition Tambourine or the Finger Castanets Pair. Some of Meinl's percussion, including the Sleigh Bells and Professional Wood Block, are really distinctive effects that may not make an appearance in every single song - but when their cue does come up, they always make a memorable impression.
Once you've gone through the Meinl concert percussion lineup and decided which instruments are right for your needs, remember to take a second look to check for any stands or other accessories you could use. Meinl has plenty to offer here, so you can certainly find plenty of gear to help you build an excellent concert percussion collection even if you're starting from scratch.
