Oak Tulip-Shaped Wooden Finger Cymbals

I’m so pleased to announce that my brother Joe’s wooden finger cymbal line is expanding to include a variety of different hand-turned woods.  To help him in growing his side-business, I’m helping him make demo videos for each of the styles.  If you like the way these wooden cymbals sound, please visit his Etsy Shop for more details on size, price, wood options, and current availability.   I’m so proud and happy to be working on this project!

Wooden finger cymbals are the perfect practice instrument.  It’s good for keeping the sound down if you live in a small space like an apartment, condo, or dorm.  Because they don’t have a long ringing sustain, they are great to play around pets and people wearing hearing aids.  These oak cymbals have a beautiful finish that adds a different flavor to dance performances.  The sounds these oak cymbals make are evocative of Turkish spoons, wooden bones, and castanets.

If you would like more information about finger cymbals, their history, selection, technique, and maintenance, check out my book “Zills, Music on Your Fingertips” now available as a digital download on my Etsy Shop.

I hope you are surviving and possibly even
thriving in our current social distancing world.
