Supernylon pandeiro with hammered jingles - Pagode pandeiro with "hand-made" features

The Pro Leve (=Light) from Contemporanea's Luthier series is definitely one of the lightest nylon head pandeiros on the market, weighing just about 500g. The wooden frame is coated with a layer of black synthetic laminate and thick in order to withstand the pressure of the high tension caused by the typical high tuning of Pagode pandeiros. We are massive supernylon fans: the head is coated with fibreglass on the underside. It feels like a thin layer of velvet paper and cleans out all overtones that synthetic heads like to produce. The muffling effect results in crisp slaps and funky opens that will rock every Pagode and are totally fun to play. The PRO Leve Luthier is the successor model of the popular Formica, which is pretty similar in terms of construction but has very different jingle characteristics. The PRO Leve Luthier has hammered brass jingles that look like from a handmade pandeiro. The sound is delicate but modern, compatible and powerful, strong sound qualities and a blast to play!

  • Very good playing feel
  • Supernylon head
  • Very low overtone level
  • light
  • hammered jingles

Another great instrument from Contemporanea!

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.


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.



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.
