Anthony Di Sanza Triangle Trigger

Designed in collaboration with Anthony Di Sanza, the DTT allows for exceptional triangle sound and performance using sticks, mallets, or hands. The Di Sanza Triangle Trigger isn't meant to replace holding and striking the triangle in a traditional manner, but provides a solution to performance situations where time won't allow tradition playing techniques, such as musical theatre, multiple percussion repertoire, and limited personnel.

Here's a picture of Anthony Di Sanza's first iteration of his Triangle Trigger from 2001. He came up with this for Dave Hollinden's piano and percussion duo "Platinum," which was written for Sole Nero, the piano & percussion duo of Jessica Johnson and Di Sanza. Think of it like a castanet machine for a triangle. 

When we were working on the BSP version, we sent Anthony many versions to make sure that the beater response was perfect. And, because good triangle tone is dependent on hitting the triangle at the right angle and at the right distance from the corner, we made sure that those elements were an integral part of the final design.
