I've always thought of Tambourines as being those rather boring round things that we had at school as children. However, these are lovely, a bit different, but with the same sort of sound. They are hand carved and painted in traditional dot painted designs and sound great. They are light and easy to hold and measure about 12 inches or 30cm or so in length. They come in two designs - a Parrot or a Gecko. Please note you are purchasing one item!
