High end handmade wood tamborim 6" with selected goatskin head

Nice and oldschool - a tamborim with hide head is not for Samba bateria playing, in fact is a relict of former times where it had its fix place in Samba de mesa and relaxed Choro sessions. It is not pitched too high and is played with not more than one finger or a simple wood stick. The plopping tone contributes with an amazing swing to a roda de Samba. The first-ever tamborins were built of simple angled wood boxes with a skin pinned to it. Then when the trend went toward higher tuning, the tension hoop was invented. A real piece of Samba history!

This handmade wood tam by Fabiano Raposa is beautifully made and equipped with a carefully selected goat skin head.

"Fabiano Raposa"

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.
