Cowbells are among these percussion instruments that you often make fun of, a little bit like the triangle.
And that’s because people think it’s enough to hit the instrument without thinking about it.
Well guess what? They’re wrong! There’s much more to the cowbell than just hitting without thinking.
A core part of Afro-Cuban and Latin-American music, you’d be surprised how hard a cowbell can groove when you know how to play it correctly…
And it will add some serious rhythmic structure to ANY song.
On top of that, it’s an excellent addition to any drummer’s set up, whether on the drumkit or on a percussion set up.
So whether you play;
Or really any other music with some rhythm in it…
The cowbell is a sure way to make people want to stand up and start moving.
And so for today’s article I decided to compile the best models out there… And some more.
Sounds good? Then let’s start.
