This may look like a normal 10" headed tambourine, but it is far from it. First off, it is drum-key tunable, so you don't have to use those screwdriver-type tuners that are always falling off. Next, it comes with Pearl's exclusive Quick Draw mount, which converts it from mountable to handheld in seconds. Accessorize your percussion kit, or add it alongside one of you tom-toms on your drum set. The 10" head can easily take the abuse of sticks or brushes, and produces a unique tom sound with a hint of jingles.

I was inspired to get this by a YouTube video showing how this can used similar to Steve Amedee's approach to tambourine playing with the SubDudes. This is very cool add-on. Here's the reasons why: 1) This is a viable alternative to the LP Stanton Moore drum set pandeiro. The Tombourine is NOT a pandeiro because of the jingles and is 10" instead of 12". Even so, after I replaced the stock head with a new coated Evans G2 9highly recommended)it sounded very similar if not the same as Stanton's pandeiros on his DVD's (also recommended) 2) As mentioned above - you can use a drum set head instead of having to hunt down a more 'specific' replacement. 3)The tombourine is not attached to the mount but rests securely on it. This means you can change out the tombourine itself and put another headed percussion instrument on there (tambourine, pandeiro, small frame drum, etc.), I haven't tried this but it looks easy enough to do as long as the shell is deep enough and not so thick as to fit in the post configuration on the mount. 4)You can take the tombourine off the mount and play it with your hands. 5) IF you are trying to do Stanton's thing with the side pandeiro and are on a budget, this is cheaper. With all of my comparisons, I have to say that I've never played the LP SM Pandeiro. One thing that might be an issue for me with it is that if you want to play it as a traditional pandeiro, you have to navigate around the mount attached to the shell which also adds weight. Weight contributing to fatigue might be an issue for some in this example. However, the LP SM pandeiro is 12" while the Pearl Tombourine is 10". That probably makes a difference to some and should be noted when comparing. I also wished the Tombourine mount itself had a bit farther reach, making it easier to position away from underneath my hi hat. In any case, a great value and I recommend checking it out.
this product is great its like having a custum drum for the weird sounds percussipnist need.
