“You’re reviewing a tambourine? Have you lost it, man?” Yeah, that’s what I was dealing with around the office while wailing away on this tambourine.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I was a Percussion Performance Major in college and was schooled in the proper techniques of tambourine playing. Later in life, I was fortunate enough to play drums alongside the great percussionist Tom Roady, who passed away a few years ago. Tom could make a tambourine sing like no one I have ever heard or watched. When he picked up a tambourine, it was as if it became a living being. And during my years playing with him, I picked up a thing or two about the art of the tambourine.
When Grover asked if I’d review their new Studio Pro™ Tambourine with German Silver jingles, I was excited to accept the challenge.
