sorry , but I did't get it .The trick with tambourines is that whatever you mount them to, you will be playing the tambourine as well every time you hit it. So I mount mine separately from everything else, in the base of a basic snare stand, using an old cymbal tilter. This separates it from everything else on the kit, and was made from spare parts.
You can use an old cymbal stand, or, if you haven't got much equipment or space and you really need to mount it, put it on your hi-hat rod for now.
This should drive you nuts...The trick with tambourines is that whatever you mount them to, you will be playing the tambourine as well every time you hit it.
There's little doubt that this type of mounting will provide some level of spill. But I always found that the other instruments (including the hats) would negate this anyway......you just couldn't hear any tambo jingle, with all the other stuff going on.OP, I mean to say that if you want the tambourine sound isolated as much as possible, don't mount it on something you hit all the time, such as a hi-hat stand, on the same rod with a cowbell, etc.
You are right about that. Especially amplified, in a loud and noisy bar, no reason not to mount it whereever. Recording, that's a whole nuther story. I have recorded using a mounted tambourine with the rest of the kit, but for songs I wasn't using it on, I took it off the kit entirely.In no way do I disagree with your statement, in fact, I agree wholeheartedly......the only real way to avoid spill is to isolate the thing. But I believe it's effect is minimal in a band context.
