Our pandeiro is based on the traditional Brazilian style drum, played gymnastically with the finger pads and hand heel. Our turned shell is 10 ” diameter, 1 7/8″ high, with precision cut bearing edge.
Each of the 6 sets of embossed and cupped jingles are dampened with a flat jingle to reduce sustain and create the traditional pandeiro’s dry, articulated jingle sound.
A soft natural skin head gives emphasis to the instrument’s percussive sound. Our patented internal tuning technology gives the skin head a range of possibilities while allowing the player to maintain a complete range of motion, unencumbered by external hardware. Tension on the head is adjusted by the action of an internal, lightweight, moveable bearing member. A T-grip Allen wrench and tuning instructions are included. We secure the head into an exterior grove which is then covered with a colored knit, cord, a design that minimizes the tendency of the head to pull away from the shell.
If you prefer a synthetic head, choose a REMO® cloth/mylar head to imitate the lower pitch range of the specially processed goatskin, or a REMO® Renaissance for a more modern, full pitch range.
We’ve added a decorative inlay to give the drum a jazzy look.
