Product Description



The NEW alla Turca II  offers six jingling rings, providing the maximum jingling effect for Janissary-influenced music.  Choose alla Turca II for the sound of jingling rings at their fullest.  Or, choose the original alla Turca for fewer rings and more of the triangle articulation present in the sound.

When played, the alla Turca II  has three rings that vibrate as they hang from the bottom of the instrument.  There are also three additional jingling rings that vibrate on top the other open end providing even more jingling sound. 

The alla Turca II  is larger than the original alla Turca  and has thicker, heavier brass rings.  Our antiquing (living finish) process is applied to both the triangle and rings.  

The alla Turca II  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”.

This instrument is 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.

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

dimensions:  9 1/2" x .5"
