Pandeiro is considered by many THE Brazilian national music instrument. A frame drum with jingles, it is related to the "adoufe" (a square tambourine native to Portugal) and to the oriental Riqq.
This quite sophisticated instrument allows the player a large number of different sounds. Pandeiro is played throughout Brazil in various types of music: Samba, choro, forró, “regional”… A good pandeiro player is supposed to be able to imitate all sounds of a drum band : hitting the outer part of the head with the thumb gives a low note while slaps on the center of it produces a dry, loud impact. As for the jingles, they add a crisp touch to the instrument’s overall range.
This model offers, due to its gostskin head and wooden frame, all the sound qualities expected from a good pandeiro. It will meet the needs of beginners and advanced players alike, being suitable for a large number of musical styles.
Izzo has designed this pandeiro to give access to quality instruments to a wide public (very reasonnable prices).
