Handmade atabaque 120 cm - Lê (large 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 Rum, the largest sized 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.

Beautifully handmade with traditional sound.

Beautifully handmade with traditional sound. very TALL(49")! If you are less than 6' in height, you will have difficulty playing this, you'll have to stand on something.
Flat tone and resonance. Very fair price.
