When it comes to percussion, the triangle often takes center stage in the realm of humorous sporting event halftime commercials. However, for dedicated percussionists, the triangle is no laughing matter. It's a versatile instrument that adds color, nuance, and pulse to a wide range of musical genres. If you're a gigging percussionist, you understand the importance of having the right tools for the job. That's why Black Swamp is thrilled to introduce two new triangle beater options into our catalog: the Bronze Select and Steel Spectrum Triangle Beaters.

Releasing the Bronze Select Beater

Our original Select Series, featuring rod-style beaters with three different diameters of rod, has been a staple for percussionists seeking clarity and precision. Building on this success, we're introducing the Bronze Select Beater, available as a single or double set. These new bronze beaters complement their stainless steel siblings with a darker, richer tone while maintaining the clarity of sound that percussionists demand.

The Bronze Select beaters are more than just an addition to the lineup; they are a solution for percussionists seeking a warmer tone with added color to enhance their musical expression. Whether you're navigating through extended rhythmic passages or contributing to the texture of orchestral pieces, the Bronze Select Beater is your go-to choice for a well-rounded sonic experience.

Exploring the Stainless Steel Spectrum Triangle Beaters

In addition to the Bronze Select, we're excited to introduce the Stainless Steel Spectrum Triangle Beaters. This innovative addition to our Spectrum series features three different sizes of end-weighted torpedoes mounted on a steel handle with a rubber grip. The lineup is completed with our popular teardrop beater, now available in stainless steel.

Stainless steel, known for its hardness, creates a brighter tone and provides extra articulation from your triangle. The end-weighted design activates ample overtones with enhanced definition, making the Stainless Steel Spectrum Beaters a perfect choice for percussionists seeking a more articulate sound.

Diversity in Sound: Select vs. Spectrum

Black Swamp's commitment to providing percussionists with a diverse range of sound options is evident in our Select and Spectrum beater series. The Spectrum Beaters produce a dark, wide spectrum of overtones and complex sonority within the triangle, making them ideal for isolated notes or simple rhythms. The weight concentrated at the end of the handle creates a unique sound profile that percussionists love.

On the other hand, the Select Beaters continue to be a top choice for general-purpose use. The weight distribution within the rod results in a balanced feel and a clear response, with a distinct "tick" that enhances articulation during busier passages.

With the introduction of the Bronze Select and Stainless Steel Spectrum Triangle Beaters, percussionists now have four distinct options, each catering to specific preferences and musical scenarios. Whether you're aiming for relative pitch, bright or dark articulation, or overtone complexity, Black Swamp has you covered.
