Nine time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow is very content with Grover Pro's new Studio Pro model tambourine. Neil Grover, founder of Grover Pro Percussion, handed Sheryl her new instrument prior to her debut with the Boston Pops as part of the Popular Artists Series concert at Tanglewood, MA. Sheryl used the tambourine on stage to play along with her band's drummer Fred Eltringham.
The Grover Studio Pro tambourine was developed at the urging of top studio percussionists in Nashville, like Rich Redmond, Craig Krampf, and Eric Darken, who were secretly modifying Groverís orchestral tambourines for studio use.
Specifically designed for studio recording, Grover's Studio Pro models offer the same hand-hammered and voiced jingles that have made Grover orchestral tambourines the top choice of percussionists since 1980. The natural skin head has been replaced by a rubber comfort edge which facilitates the rapid back-and-forth technique used by pop and studio players.
As a percussionist with the Boston Pops since 1977, Neil Grover has backed hundreds of top contemporary artists including: Cindy Lauper, Elvis Costello, Aerosmith, Whitney Houston, U2's Bono and many others.
Grover Studio Pro tambourines are available from top music retailers throughout North America, Europe and Asia. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) is $140.
