Matador

Cowbells

LP

The three additions to the line of Matador Cowbells -the M212 4” ($22), the M207 8” Mountable ($27.50) and the M208 8” Hand Held ($27)-come in a black finish with fully welded seams. Each bell is designed to achieve a specific sound. For example, the Matador M212, the smallest cowbell in the Matador line, yields a bright, high-pitched sound with moderate overtones. It can be played as a cha-cha bell or as the top pitch in a melodically played group. The Matador M207 has a deep pitch and moderate overtones. The bell attaches securely to both drum sets and percussion set-ups by means of LP’s wing-screw clamping mechanism. LP Music Group ,160 Belmont Avenue, Garfield, NJ 07026; http://www.lpmusic.com
