Top orchestral percussionists the world over consider Grover tambourines to be the "Stradivarius" of concert tambourines. Found in the world's finest concert halls, Grover tambourines have been resounding with crystal-clear clarity and full, rich timbres for over 30 years! Each and every Grover tambourine is thoughtfully designed to produce sound colors of the highest musical integrity. Meticulous craftsmen painstakingly handcraft each tambourine one at a time. Every one of our tambourines begins life in the skilled hands of one artisan and ends up in hand of the world's most demanding percussionists. Includes CTB tambourine bag and Roll Ring™!
Weighing 15% less than our other pro-level tambourines, Grover Pro Bantamweight™ Series tambourines are easier to grip, control, and play! The Bantamweight’s shell is narrower in depth, resulting in a professional-quality instrument which can be played with ease and dexterity, especially by younger percussionists and those with smaller hands.
15% weight reduction and a thinner grip width
Like our other pro models, these tambourines feature 34 jingles in a staggered row configuration. Dual-width jingle slots facilitate smooth, even rolls. The head is carefully pre-tensioned and mounted to the shell using a two-part adhesive that secures the perimeter of the head to the shell bearing edge. Remo’s Skyntone® head material is used because it closely simulates the natural warmth of real skin, the difference being that it will remain tight at all times and under any playing condition.
Every Bantamweight Series tambourine features:
- Reduced weight solid hardwood shell
- Remo pre-tensioned Skyntone head
- Staggered, dual-width jingle slots
- Hand-hammered jingles
- Captive pin system
- Cordura case & Roll-Ring™ included
T2/GS-B German Silver jingles
German Silver resounds with a clear articulation that is bright, sensitive, and powerful. This versatile alloy is the choice of many classical players looking for a focused sparkle that’s not too heavy in sound. German Silver is the most popular choice for all-around playing requirements.
The Roll Ring™ is designed to aid concert percussionists with the execution of thumb/finger tambourine rolls. This circular ring helps players easily create the friction needed to produce a smooth, even sounding roll. The 1" wide band is specially shaped to conform to the outer edge of a headed concert tambourine. It has a special non-permanent adhesive backing that makes it super easy to put on and take off in seconds! The Roll Ring is reusable and can be applied and stored numerous times.
