MEINL headed wood tambourines are outfitted with the finest hand selected goat skin heads for uniform thickness and outstanding sound quality. Available in one or two row versions with dual alloy nickel plated steel and solid brass jingles, this model tambourine delivers a bright, shimmering response with full resonance from the pre-tuned goat skin head and sturdy wooden frame. Nickel plated steel and brass jingles are among the brightest sounding with a light sustain. Headed tambourines are ideal for adding a multitude of sound possibilities from playing as a hand drum to using the head to implement sound effects such as finger rolls and pitch bending techniques. The head also helps to compose the overall resonance of the tambourine.
