Bubeb???[edit]

I don't get the difference between "buben" and "tambourine". It says that buben is bubanj in Serbian - it is not, in Serbian " bubanj" is drums, what is described as "bubanj" in Serbian is "daire". I think that whole "buben" section is simply wrong. Saigon from europe 08:03, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

What I found by checking translations of the word tamborine is that this is part of the name of the tamborine in some other languages. I plan to remove this section since it is the same instrument. This could be changed to mention that the tamborine is played in these countries.

Photo[edit]

How about a better photo? Maxxo 22:09, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

pasted text from other articles[edit]

It looks like a massive amount of text from other similar articles has been pasted here recently. The article now has a couple of introductions in the middle and end of the page. The article on the daf seems to specifically been pasted here word for word. I think it is appropriate to mention these related instruments here with their own descriptions and links to the articles. But this entire duplication of other articles don't seem right. I plan to cut out a bunch of this stuff.-Crunchy Numbers 19:53, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

On second thought maybe some of those articles should be merged here. This article could be rephrased in a few spots to better integrate this new material. Some of it, like the Bendir doesn't seem to belong here. It has no jangles so doesn't seem to qualify as a tamborine.-Crunchy Numbers 18:28, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
No need to merge from culturally specific tambourines; they're all quite distinct in construction and playing technique. This article should give the basics about the instrument type and the Western "tambourine," then link to further information at other articles for pandeiro, kanjira, riq, etc. Badagnani 23:20, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
The only one I merged is the Riq. It would be pretty easy to put it back and just leave a short description here.-Crunchy Numbers 01:08, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
Sure, why not? If you're a frame drum specialist, I'll leave it to you, as I'm more of a wind and string guy.  :) Badagnani 01:51, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

recording[edit]

does anyone happen to have a tambourine, plus a microphone they could use to record it? Randomwellwisher 10:05, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Definition vs. Picture[edit]

The first picture does not match the definition at the beginning of the article. The definition mentions a "drumhead", while in the picture there is none. Is the thing in the picture actually a tambourine? If so, fix the definition. If not, replace the picture. I don't know enough about the topic to do this. Anyone? Tugbug 00:13, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

The picture is a modern tambourine which does not have a skin Tambourine as a generic term covers lots of different instruments with jingles. Freddythehat 17:09, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Zils ambiguity[edit]

This part messes me up:

"consisting of a frame, often of wood or plastic, with pairs of small metal jingles, called "zils". "

So can "zils" be "zil"? Is "one zil" referring to a single pair of small metal jingles, or to a single metal jingle. I just got one of these, and it's missing a pair of metal jingles. Am I missing a zil, 2 zils, or a pair of zils, or what? ClintJCL (talk) 23:38, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

New Image[edit]

Wow, the illustration that had been used as the primary image for this article for years was terrible (see commons:File:Tambourine1.svg). I replaced it with this commons:File:Pandeiro3.JPG. If you feel another image or illustration would be better, feel free to browse commons:Tambourine and commons:Category:Tambourines. Plot Spoiler (talk) 00:42, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
