Here’s some general percussive advice geared towards my music educator colleagues. This piece, original written for SB&O magazine, serves to provide insight into the task of acquiring proper basic percussion accessory instruments. The percussion instruments covered include: concert tambourine, piatti or hand cymbals, woodblock, temple blocks and more.

We just returned from PASIC 2010 held this year in Indianapolis. It was a tremendous show and a smashing success for us!
Thousands of percussionists checked out the wide range of super-high quality products on display in the Grover booth. Here’s a short list of what percussionists drooled over: 13 models of tambourines, 10 models of triangles, 34 models of mallets, our new temple blocks, Spectrasound Mark Tree bar chimes, our new Titanium G3 Concert SD, plus much more!
Grover Pro has just released the new “Open-Tone” temple blocks. These high quality blocks are manufactured in eight graduated sizes. Two different sets are available, our “standard” set of five and our unique “bass” set of three. Each set is sold separately, so that if you already own a set of five blocks, you can add our “bass” set to expand the tonal range of your temple block setup. Click here for more detailed information.
