    Question Best drumset TAMBOURINE

    1. What was the difference in sound between the Pearl PTM-10GH and RhythmTech DST?

    2. Which one sounds more musical/sweet?

    3. Are they both loud enough to cut through a mix?

    4. Which is better and why - brass jingles or steel?

    5. Does Toca and Latin Percussion have drum tambourines better than these? If yes, which one?

    6. Out of the box are these ready to mount?


    Thanks in advance

    I have the DST w/nickel jingles and love it, but both will cut through just fine. Which one sounds better just depends on your ear. The nickel models are brighter, brass are darker/warmer. Yes, it was ready to mount out of the box. LP makes the mountable Cyclops, I don't know about Toca. Hope that helps.

    I have the Pearl PTM-10GH and love it. I think you read what I said in my thread... In my opinion, the only way to decide which one sounds best is to try them yourself. Both are good quality, and will cut through a mix. You don't need to buy any extra mounting hardware. (Except a boom arm or 7/8 post or what-not) You can take the Pearl Tambourines out of their cradle to use them with your hand if you want. You can't do that with the DST. The black rubber around the top of the Pearl Tambourine gets the shoulders of your drumsticks a little black. I'm not sure if the DST has rubber on the top...

    You can indeed take the DST off it's mounting post and use it with your hand, and the DST has a more plastic'y type material around it's edge that doesn't colour your sticks....

    I have a Latin Percussion Cyclops model, brass with hammered jingles that I really like: very crisp. It sounds better than most other tambourines I've heard, but that's just my opinion, of course.

    Thanks. There's no way I can try them out because they're just not available here. If I decide which one I want to buy, I can ask somebody to get it from the US.

    By the way, there's no money for boom arm. LOL

    But you have to unscrew it to do that don't you? Or did I miss something?...

    The cradle idea is great for teaching. I can just pick it up and tap away to help my student.
