Thanks to COVID-19 I inadvertently started making tambourine jingles while making the beer bottle cap drum pads. This then lead to months of trial-and-error with different alloys. Eventually, I started steambending my own wood shells as well. With lots of feedback from kind people in the industry I kept at it and created my own instruments.
I learned that hand-hammered is quite the catch phrase in the concert percussion world.
These jingles are very much hand-hammered. They are completely formed into their final shape through hammering. Not pressed, then tapped a few times with a hammer or machine and called “hand-hammered”. The result is an extremely sensitive and dry jingle sound. Lots of times instruments advertised as “dry” tend to sound thin and weak in volume, but these maintain a full sound at loud dynamics and shake rolls are quite effortless.
If you’re interested in trying before buying please send me an email and I can do that if I have any in stock. They’re very time-consuming to make, but I think the results are worth the effort.
-Stainless 333 uses three different stainless jingles. The driest and brightest.
-Stainless/Nickel is dry but slightly wetter and with a bit more spread than the the 333 model.
-Nickel is wet, but not overwhelmingly so. Clarity is still quite easy.
