Soundiron Rattletines is a set of unique hand-crafted tuned percussion instruments created by instrument designer and sound sculptor Bart Hopkin. These one-of-a-kind instruments each produce their own special flavour of rattle or buzz, with every note having its own warmly resonant flavour.

Rattletine includes two rows of tines. The upper tines hammer against “anvils” as they vibrate. The lower row is clean, for a clearer tone quality. Mahogany and Hacksaw Blades both feature tongues with holes and small pieces of metal wrapped through. When plucked, the metal wrappings rattle as the tongue vibrates, producing a unique buzzing sound. Aptly named, Hacksaw Blades uses actual hacksaw blades for the tongues.

Soundiron have faithfully sampled tine plucks and percussive hand slaps on the instrument bodies, with two stereo mic positions. Also included is a wide selection of custom FX presets and plenty of our signature sound designed ambient content, crafted from the raw acoustic source to give you complete creative freedom.
