Product Description



This triangle connects percussionists with the history of the instrument.  In centuries past, triangles with rings were found in both sacred and secular music.  Composers such as Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart began to use the triangle to evoke the sounds of Turkish Janissary bands—often emulating the jingling sound of the instrument known as the “Turkish Crescent”.

The alla Turca's jingling rings are made of German Silver and aluminum alloy.  The surface of the instrument is partially hand-hammered for maximum overtones.  Living Sound’s antiquing process protects the surface of the triangle, without inhibiting vibrations.

Percussionists can now bring musical history to life with the original alla Turca™ triangle.

Recommended for all pre-19th Century music, as well as the many orchestral and operatic works that evoke the sounds of Turkish or military music, including Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9”, Haydn’s “Military Symphony” No. 100, Mozart’s “Die Entführung aus dem Serail”, and Rossini’s “Banda Turca” parts.

dimensions:  7 1/2" x .375"
