Of all the string instruments this is the easiest to master.
Surprisingly poor income level generated when busking.
Despite not being able to take any exams through the Royal Associated Board of music the triangle is my favourite string instrument. I have heard people refer to the triangle as belonging to the percussion family but this is complete ignorance. The string is the main component of the triangle, if played without string and just held in the hand it makes a very dull clunk, one not very pleasing to the trained classical ear. Despite this you cannot play the string section of an orchestra.
I would recommend Roy's Metal Fabrication of triangle for the beginner, it is quite light and will enable easy carraige to and from lessons. I would reccomend starting on this before moving on to any of the heavier Bass or Pipe triangles.
