A sustainable alternative to beeswax.

Within the orchestral percussion world it is a well known practice to apply wax around the edge of your tambourine head to perform various extended techniques on the instrument such as a thumb or finger roll. Beeswax, surfboard wax, and bow rosin are some options used to increase friction on the heads of tambourines to execute these rolls on the surface of the instrument.

100% vegan, made from renewable materials, and packaged sustainably.

As part of our ongoing initiative to introduce more eco-friendly accessories (such as our new wood drum dampeners) and production habits into our catalog of products, Black Swamp Percussion is introducing a new Soy Wax compound for tambourines.

This new Soy wax is not a replacement for our existing beeswax compound, but rather a more sustainable alternative. We have made conscious efforts to make sure our beeswax is locally and ethically sourced to reduce any potential harm to an increasingly fragile species. This awareness has pushed us to think of future products that put the planet in mind, first and foremost. Apart from the Soy being a highly renewable material, we're also using a recycled sleeve and sticker for packaging. The Soy wax has a smoother feel, but is tacky enough to rival the performance of our traditional beeswax.
