Linha Estudo Silent Pandeiro - silent practice pandeiro
Versatile, lightweight practice pandeiro for all those who want to play without having to leave the house to go to the rehearsal space or just want to play a short midnight session with consideration for flatmates, family members and neighbours. With its Linha Estudo, Contemporanea has designed a series of interesting practice instruments that catch the eye with features very similar to those of "real" instruments. The Silent Pandeiro not only feels like a normal pandeiro, but can produce all the essential characteristics of pandeiro playing in terms of feel, weight and jingle response, but without creating any noise. Compared to other instruments, regular pandeiros are rather quiet instrument already, but those who have small children or fussy neighbours, for example, will appreciate being able to practise normally but without having to worry to disturb or wake anybody up. The pandeiro in particularly demanding in terms of being an instrument that needs to be practised a lot and with great regularity in order to master it at a higher level. With its standard 10" size, it fits in any backpack, can be taken along on trips and takes up hardly any storage space at home. The rubberised jingles catch and muffle the sound and a meshhead practice net provides a rebound with character. At just under 500g, the Silent Pandeiro is not a hand-made superlight product, but is still clearly in the lighter section of our pandeiros.
Customer reviews for "Linha Estudo Silent Pandeiro 10''"(4)
I bought this for training and it is really silent and with a nice light weight. The jingles are made out of rubber, but does a good job imitating original ones.
I got this silent pandeiro to play at home and to use when other people are around and I don't want to get in the way. It is a bit heavier than my artisan pandeiros but it feels and moves like a real instrument. If you play in a room and shut the door, you can't hear a thing outside. The rebound is softer of course with the mesh and it took me a while to get used to it, but point is you can rehearse at any time in silence and kids, neighbours, partner - they won't hear a thing.
The Silent Pandeiro is very close to the original in terms of feel. There is enough acoustic feedback for practicing technique or grooves. My family and neighbors love it too :)
- das Gewicht ist gut. Es gibt noch ein paar leichtere P.s, aber so hohe Ansprüche stelle ich hier nicht.
- der "Rebound" im Spielgefühl ist einigermaßen realistsisch.
- die Verarbeitung scheint so weit okay zu sein (bis auf die Gummischeiben-"Patelas" - s. u.)
- den Preis finde ich gerade noch okay...
- aber dann doch eher für die Idee.
- einige Sound (insbes. "rulo" etc.) kann man auf diesem Speziall-"Fell" nicht üben - was noch zu verkraften wäre.
- ABER: nach meinem Dafürhalten ist das Silent Pandeiro schlicht und einfach allzu "silent", also ZU LEISE geraten.
Ist das Fell schon kaum noch hörbar und verführt daher zu festerem Schlag als nötig (was natürlich musikalisch unsinnig ist), so sind insbesondere die recht primitiven Gummi-"Patelas" praktisch unhörbar und damit ohne Funktion.
Ein wenig mehr Klang bräuchte ich dann doch für die Kontrolle beim Üben...
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil
This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in Brazil. Intensive contact to the musicians has always been an important part of their business strategy. They not only sell instruments, but mainly live their music. Every Saturday morning, many musicians meet up in CONTEMPORÂNEA´S music shop in the historic center of São Paulo. In a special back room, musicians of every age play Choro. The pagodeiros meet up in front of the shop for playing their sessions. Many of São Paulo´s smaller and larger Samba schools play CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments.
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Europe
Also in Europe CONTEMPORÂNEA is a popular brand which you sometimes even find in drum- and percussion shops that don´t have so much to do with Samba.
CONTEMPORÂNEA has two lines: CONTEMPORÂNEA LIGHT and CONTEMPORÂNEA PRO.
The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium. Kept in a simple design and not being polished, the LIGHT line can be offered at a lower price and without suffering quality loss in terms of sound or durability. The robust PRO line is made of polished aluminium or wood.
Compared to other brands that also use aluminium for building instruments, CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments made from aluminium stand out by being built of thicker material which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo, but therefore also a higher weight.
