TreeWorks Chimes’ Steeple Triangle is crafted from massive, half-inch thick, hardened steel alloy. The unique “stretched triangle” shape combined with the high temperature heat treatment yields an instrument with unusual sonic characteristics that go beyond the traditional triangle. Unusual for a large instrument… this triangle is still supremely responsive, even to the lightest touch. Of course, the sheer mass of alloy available means full volume playing is effortless. The ultra-thin satin finish protects the triangle but is so thin it does not impede the sound. Great for accents and special effects, add this creative instrument to your set up. Comes with a full size professional stainless steel beater. In the summer of 1996, TreeWorks Chimes was created by Mitch McMichen. It began in his garage in Nashville, Tennessee. The first set of chimes was made with a hacksaw and a hand drill. It didn’t look like much, but that was the first step to crafting the perfect set of chimes. When asked about the early days of TreeWorks, Mitch replies, “I wasn’t trying to start a company. I was trying to find a sound.” Since then TreeWorks Chimes has grown to become the most respected chimes in the percussion world – used by top studio and touring drummers and percussionist as well as the top 24 drum corps. These instruments are still handmade in Nashville, Tennessee and are unmatched in craftsmanship and sound quality. (It is of note that Mitch McMichen has earned Gold and Platinum records for his recording work in Nashville.)
- A FULLY IMMERSIVE SONIC SCULPTURE | By combining the sounds of our popular 4″ and 8″ steeple triangles into a single instrument, the TRE1d is a triangle made for multiple uses and various triangle effects. This model can be hung with either side on top and offers several playing zones to explore.

The mantle secures the triangle in place with a super durable polyurethane coated braided steel cord to keep your triangle hanging year after year.
