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.
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.

Chris Quade Couto is a musician and multi-percussionist from Cologne, Germany and has been playing with G.R.E.S. Unidos da Tijuca in the Grupo Especial of Rio's top league Samba for many years. On the tam, he is an absolute professional and Contemporanea has dedicated this signature instrument to him.

Brand description "Contemporânea"

contemporanea

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.


Instruments

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.
