- Tabor (instrument)
Tabor, or tabret, refers to a portable
snare drumplayed with one hand. The word "tabor" is simply an English variant of a Latin-derived word meaning "drum" - cf. tambour (Fr.), tamburo (It.). [From [http://www.harmsperc.com/tabor.htm Harms Historical Percussion's Todays Tabor page] ] It has been used in the military as a marching instrument, and has been used as accompaniment in parades and processions.
A tabor has a cylindrical wood shell, two skin heads tightened by rope tension, a leather strap, and an adjustable gut snare. Each tabor has a pitch range of about an octave: the larger the tabor, the lower the pitch. It is played by just one stick, which usually strikes the snare head. The tabor is suspended by a strap from the forearm, somewhere between the elbow and wrist. When played, the shell is virtually parallel with the ground. [Description of Tabors is by Historic Percussion maker, Ben Harms at [http://www.harmsperc.com/tabor.htm Harms Historical Percussion's Todays Tabor page] ]
The tabor is most widely known as accompaniment for the fife and other small
flutes, and most famously as the percussive element in the " pipe and tabor" one man bandconfiguration. Photos of this can be seen at [http://www.harmsperc.com/tabor.htm Harms Historical Percussion's Tabor page] . The tabor is beaten on the snare side.
In Spain, a
deep drumis used for a tabor by pipe and taborers, and in England a shallow tom tomis sometimes used, although medieval icons of pipe and tabor usually display a large shallow tabor similar in shape to a bodhran.
