I would like to present a most unusual instrument find in our shop. A few years ago I found this original Baroque triangle in Vienna. I tested this instrument personally in Haydn's "Seasons", in his "Military Symphony" and in Mozart's "Abduction from the Seraglio" with the Concentus Musicus under Harnoncourt. The sound blended perfectly with the period instruments. This triangle, completely different in shape and sound from the regular triangles, could well be the solution of the triangle sound problem in period ensembles. We have some copies of this instrument in brass or steel constantly for sale available.
In the picture below you see replicas of original 18th century timpani mallets, which we also offer for sale.
