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 professional model, made by Brazilian leader in percussion-making Contemporãnea, is particularly suitable for Choro accompaniment. Choro is a typically Brazilian instrumental genre were pandeiro is generally the only percussion instrument. This is why such a model has to have deep bass sound as well as bright, precise jingles... This particular model has a 12 in diameter, which helps rendering deeper bass sounds...Enthusiasts won't be disappointed!
