One of our top ultra-light pandeiros!
Beautifully manufactured superlight pandeiro from South Brazil! The Seleção modell craftworked by Fabiano Raposa is optically as well as sound-technically an extraordinary instrument! Like all his pandeiros, the fine and extremely light frame is made of valuable wood. The Seleção has hand-hammered and strongly domed brass jingles sounding fine and almost delicate with an interleaf inbetween each pair of jingles. A hand-selected goatskin is a further gusto for your eyes and ears, and of course the chromed flatrim. Using flatrim tension hoops on pandeiros makes it possible to build very light instruments. The skin is not pressed into a metall ring like usually but wrapped around a piece of wire which saves weight! Also a pandeiro built with the flatrim technique is comfortable to hold because there is no hoop in the way standing over the top. The flat metall fits nicely in your hand and also looks good!
Another special feature: The hook-brackets are slid on from the bottom of the frame, like this it is not neccessary to injure the frame by having to drill holes to fix the brackets.
A beautiful first-rate craftmansship, lightweight high-end pandeiro with a clear, balanced jingle sound!
Customer reviews for "Pandeiro 10" Seleçao"(4)
I chose this product because the indicated weight was 0.35 kg, the actual weight is 0.38 kg.
I felt cheated
Furthermore the raposa has two hooks (only 2 ??) very short that do not allow a low tuning.
this time I am not satisfied at all
Hi Raffaele, I am sorry you are not happy with your order; animal skins on wood pandeiros are both natural materials, the guideline weight we indicate for these instruments may vary slightly due to e.g. the thickness of the head or the consistency of the wood. You may always contact us for advice or make use of your right to return if you wish! About the hooks, our customer service has already contacted you with the details! Chrissy

FABIANO RAPOSA´s workshop is based in Florianopolis, the south of Brazil.
His pandeiros are handcrafted in artisanal processes and are of very high quality.
You can see that the pandeiros are made with great accuracy and an exceptional affection to details. For the instrument´s frame, different types of precious woods are being used. Later, the sound characteristics are highly influenced by the choice of the wood.
Last but not least the choice of the skin is made by strict criterias. Alltogether this is what makes the sound of those instruments unique, fine and clear.
The basic idea behind RAPOSA is that it is more fun to play on good and pretty instruments and therefore it is also easier to make good music.
