Traditional atabaque de Capoeira 90cm with rope tuning

 

Beautiful, hand worked unique pieces made of solid wood planks and sisal ropes. Atabaques are Brazilian hand drums with a rich tradition and African roots. In Brazil atabques are played in Capoeira and ritual Candomblê music. The rope tuning system is especially popular amongst capoeiristas. You can tune the drum by knocking in or loosening the wooden wedges held by a metal hoop with a wood or rubber hammer. The body is built in traditional barrel style and is boardered by several iron hoops on different levels.

 

The atabaques are made one by one, very nice quality and solid artinsan work by Mestre Negão who manufactures them in his small workshop in São Paulo. Mestre Negão is Capoeirista and instrument builder making exceptional skills. In no more than a small room of his house he creates a lovely selection of beautiful instruments. The atabaques have hand picked, partly shaven skins, solid bodies and a wooden stand with rubber edge that goes with the drum.

Dimensions:
Instrument height without stand: approx. 90cm
Instrument height with stand: approx. 110cm
Diameter of head: approx. 9,5"

Due to all instruments of this series being artisanally manufactured, some small deviations may occur.

Très bon produit

Bel atabaque. Un son parfait. Bien emballé et livraison rapide. Un plaisir de l'utiliser. Je pense que le prix est largement mérité. Bravo mestre negao et merci kalango

Die Atabaque ist super, klingt sehr gut, ist auch sehr gut verarbeitet.
Nur der Fuß ist nicht gerade, sodass die Atabaque wackelt und nicht richtig steht.
