Pandeiro is considered by many as 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 pandeiro has a formica frame and a synthetic, hologrphic head with an original Brazilian-flag design. Extremely sturdy, it was designed to play basic patterns as well as tricky variations and solos, with a loud, precise, high-pitched sound with very little sustain. It differs greatly from a natural-head, traditional pandeiro, though it is a top-of-the-range model, as far as modern samba is concerned. It should be used with its head very tense.

    First Pandeiro for Capoeira satisfactory, light, the next one will be with animal skin to compare because used to other percussions with natural skin. (Translated review)

    Small unpretentious pandeiro formica. The skin is a bit thin. The weight is correct for this thickness of wood, but the handle is to be removed from the 1st use, it slips if you sweat a little. The cymbalettes sometimes crack depending on the angle of the movement, but are quite wide. To advise to start, or in second pandeiro... (Translated review)
