TAMBORIM CHRIS QUADE COUTO


SIGNATURE TAMBORIM CHRIS QUADE COUTO

Extra high frame - Chris Quade Couto's signature tamborim, Contemporanea

The story behind this tam is refreshingly pragmatic:
Chris Quade Couto wanted a tamborim with an extra high frame for his large hands and also because he holds the tam with only his thumb on the outside and all other fingers on the inner frame. This holding technique has become quite popular, but if the frame is not high enough, the finger tips will touch the head from the inside. From a technical point of view, this way to hold is is a matter of taste, as you can't turn the tamborim on its own axis. You will have to compensate with your wrist. This again many players find a lot easier, as less weight is put on the pinky as if you held the tam in your spread open hand.

EXTRA HIGH FRAME FOR FULL SOUND EXPERIENCE

Typical Contemporanea: thick-walled aluminium which features a saturated, full and present sound. Thicker sheet and a higher shell produce a somewhat fuller, not necessarily louder but more open, slightly lower tone. If you want more to the sound than just the regular 'pock' of a super high pitched tam, then this instrument will be able to give you what you are looking for.
On its lower side, the tamborim edge is curved to the inside providing more holding comfort and many tamborim players actually find this shape very enjoyable. A professional instrument for Rio-style bateria freaks who play a lot.

_________
