We have finally managed to find a workshop for beautiful looking and sounding Atabaques: Tião do Atabaque from Rio de Janeiro manufacters drums in the traditional manner with sturdy hardwood and beautiful best choice goatskin heads.
We are offering the Atabaques in the 3 traditional sizes: Lê ( 90 cm high, 9″ diameter ), Rumpi ( 100 cm high, 10″ diameter ), and Rum ( 120 cm high, 12″ diameter ). Tension hooks enable it to easily tune the drums as high as you prefer. An additional goody is the Rumpi with a tradional rope tuning system as alternative.
Every Atabaque comes with a simple round steel stand.
Enjoy playing and hearing the typical Capoeira rhythmes, the ritual Candomblé or Umbanda Toques, or the the wild grooves of the Samba de Roda with these absolutely authentic drums!
