When you decide that you need a tambourine in the band I wanted to know 3 things ...
Is it expensive? - You can, for some reason, spend a LOT of money on a tambourine - the HT200 ticked this box ... budget price (But to me Thomann budget gear has never been nasty) more than happy with it's cost.
Can you hear it when you play it? HT200 - Yes it rattles and it sounds loud and present ... mind it sometimes doesn't keep time!!!
Does it fall apart after a few hits? The HT200 ... No it's still working as intended, its been hit, dropped stood on and even used to deflect an object!
Nice to hold and play. I would recommend it for gigging on a shoe string.
