Beautiful Sound(s)


When in 2016 a minister friend's small, half-moon, black plastic tambourine with cheap but good sounding jingles became hazardous due to the frame cracking and nails beginning to protrude, I sought a replacement. After listening to professional quality demos produced by Meinl for each of its four compact wood tambourine models, I figured the Meinl CTA2M-BK would be a good choice. I was right. The woman loved it. Weighing slightly more than the Meinl CTA2S-BK (which I have) with nickel-plated steel jingles only, the CTA2M-BK with its alternating nickel-plated steel and brass jingles produces a beautiful combination of sound. I found its brass jingles to be significantly higher pitched than those of a RhythmTech Tambourine with Brass Jingles, even just slightly higher pitched than the non-brass jingles of a 10-inch Remo Dove Tambourine, but producing a tone akin to that of quality finger cymbals which may be heard by holding the tambourine upright to allow the jingles to ring and flicking a pair with a finger. The CTA2M-BK is virtually two six-jingle tambourines in one. The two types of jingles are significantly different from one another, yet blend well together while the tambourine's small diameter frame accommodates fast rhythmic patterns/rudiments with minimal fatigue to hand and wrist. If you like the way this tambourine sounds in Meinl's demo, you're bound to like it even more in person. A very affordable, pro grade, natural sounding instrument.
