The world of percussion involves an interesting assemblage of creatures both big and small. Many boom, some crack, and some probably even wallop. However, none are quite as pretty or ethereal as the likes of the humble triangle or graceful chimes.

Unbelievably, triangles are triangular in shape and actually produce quite a triangular sound. Usually made from steel, but sometimes from copper and others metals, triangles are made in various sizes, and the size chosen will often depend on the context of the piece of music the player will be trianguling to.

 Often a stand is used to hang the instrument at the desired height and triangle-angle, and from here the triangle can be struck with a metal beater. Similarly to the triangle itself, the beater can vary in size depending on the size of the triangle it is currently striking, has already struck, or about to strike. Some striker build quality is so good that they look quite striking.

 Chimes on the other hand offer a completely different sound to our aforementioned, three-sided friend. More often that not, chimes will be made out of steel, however, many other materials be used – most notably bamboo, glass, shell, or keys. Yes – keys.
