Handmade atabaque 90 cm - Lê (small size)

The Atabaque is the traditional Brazilian handdrum. Its home is in the Candomblé and it usually is played in a set of 3 - Lê , Rumpi and Rum. But it is also found in Capoeira and Samba de Roda, where it gives the rhythms its soulful sounds.

In the ritual drumset of 3, this Atabaque is the Lê, the smallest size drum. Our atabaques are manufactured in one of the most known ateliers of Rio de Janeiro, handmade one by one. The art of building them has been passed on over many years. A solid shell and well selected skins in the right thickness are what make the atabaques sound in their typical warm and open way.
The instrument comes with a simple iron stand.

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.

The Tiao le' atabaque is

The Tiao le' atabaque is well made, by hand and very rustic and beautiful looking. The head is rather thin and the shell tops in contact with them need some sanding down, otherwise the head could tear. The overall all tone is very traditional, rather flat and subdued resonance.
Note: the stands of all 3 atabaque are the same and therefore the tops of each drum, together, are at significantly different heights.

Answer by Kalango

dear customer, thank you for your feedback, in Brazilian music, atabaques aren't typically played in a set by one single person so different heights wouldn't be relevant as each atabaque is played by it's own musician (not like congas). I see our customer service has already contacted you. In case you had futher questions, do let us know.

You can choose between two different tuning systems, the regular version with tension hooks or, especially popular amongst capoeiristas, the traditional version with ropes. TIÃO DO ATABAQUE instruments are neatly tanned and equipped with fine sounding skins.

The Atabaques come in standard sizes of Lê, Rumpi and Rum.
