Introducing our range of Triangles

All of our triangles are from our very own Percussion Plus brand who have built a reputation for dependability and exceptional value over the last 35 years.

We have the PP258 and the PP971 to choose from which would both make great additions to your percussion sets at home or in a classroom. They are a great way for students to get stuck in and provides them with the opportunity to experience playing in a large ensemble or orchestra.

Our triangles are available in different sizes, are supplied with a beater and cord, and produce a bright and clear sound which makes a great addition to any music group.

About the triangle

The triangle is a metallic percussion instrument comprising of a tuned metal bar typically made from steel, however other metals are sometimes also used. The bar is bent into the shape of a triangle, however the two open ends of the triangle do not touch, leaving the instrument incomplete on one of the angles. This allows the triangle to resonate freely.

A chord is also looped around the bar at the top angle or corner, which the player then holds in one hand while striking the instrument with a matched metallic beater with the other.

Did you know?

There are various techniques used when playing the triangle and many complex rhythms that can be achieved. One technique involves using the fingers to mute the triangle to produce shorter, staccato notes. The triangle has been used in western classical music since the mid-18th century.

The triangle also features in compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven, however, these composers tended to use the instrument sparingly. The triangle is also frequently used in western folk, pop and rock music as well as many world music styles.
