I got this little tambourine to have in memory of my adopted mother that passed away. She played tambourine in her band and I always loved hearing her play it. This one here is made of really nice quality wood and steel and has a eslactic strap to it for easy slide onto the foot with a shoe on. Tambourine's always add a nice tone to any song. I would recommend all you band peeps out there to get this to add to your gigs. You will love it.
