BSP RecPlate

The RecPlate is one of our most versatile percussion accessories. Often used for multiple percussion setups, the RecPlate has no problem holding its own in a drum set context!

BSP Performance Hack

Tambourine Thumb Rolls

Use the jingle pin holes on Black Swamp Tambourines to measure thumb or finger roll length! Allow Junior to demonstrate.

BSP Performance Hack

Tambourine Articulation

Holding the tambourine more flat while playing helps produce a drier (shorter) sound, while holding the tambourine vertically will help produce a wetter (longer) sound.

BSP Performance Hack

Triangle Roll Speed

Keep an eye on your roll speed.  Slowing down the strokes can help create a smoother, more consistent roll with a higher quality of sound.

BSP Performance Hack

Soft Triangle Rolls

Angling your beater while playing shortens the distance between the beater and your triangle.  Since there's less distance to travel, performing soft, smooth rolls becomes easier!

Concert Castanets

In the Shop video!

This video from 2018 highlights our castanet production process.  NOTE: Rosewood castanets were discontinued in 2019, and replaced with Purpleheart, model PCC3-PH.
