We’re Back to the Future again. The Harlan Spanish Tambourine. The jingles are called Spanish, Gypsy or Bottle Cap. We use German Silver like our normal Tambos but 20% thinner to give a thinner sound like those Gypsy Tambourines from the 1930’s and 40’s. With the thinner material partnered with our normal light shell, this is a really light Tambourine. Choose tempered or untempered German Silver as the base, then we add the unique bottle cap crimping. Also available in a 50/50 combination on the 10″ or 8″ Double Row. Comes with a custom Harlan Percussion carrying case.
Julie Angelis Boehler –
I had the pleasure of trying out one of these beauties for two performances of “Carmina Burana.” The touch is akin to laying your head on a silk pillow case, smooth and luxurious. The sound is crisp and it’s effortless to play thumb rolls. Additionally, the lighter weight made it a breeze for the longer sustained roll…you know the one with the crescendo and two “pops” at the end. I feel in love with a Gypsy this weekend!
