Triangle instrument

It looks simple. But trust me, hitting metal with a stick will prove to be harder than you can ever imagine..

The triangle is a vastly complex (and incredibly expensive) musical instrument that many virtuosos have tried to master over the years. As of yet, none have succeeded. Renowned for its steep learning curve, the triangle is also famous for its visual simplicity, apparently to fool musicians into thinking it is easy to learn.

Prices start at just $889,000 (€219,923, or 30 quid). In the audio clip below, the world's most skilled triangle player shows off her skills.


edit Importance in orchestras and other types of musical groups

The importance of triangles in orchestras is major and their players receive a great amount of attention from the conductors, often masking and hiding the rest of the musicians. Over the 20th century, triangle players have moved closer to the stage and the conductor in the orchestra due to their big importance. That importance is also the justification for their exorbitant fees, as it is well known that triangle players are one of the best paid musicians in orchestras and other professional types of musical groups.

edit Construction

Its simple triangular shape has often tricked people into thinking that the manufacture of a triangle is a rather easy job but this is definitely not the case. The first triangle was the result of the cooperation between Albert Einstein and, then 13 year old, Stephen Hawking, back in 1955. It was a work based on notes from Isaac Newton and Leonardo DaVinci and Einstein's last invention, concidered by many the zenith of his discoveries.
