Timbal 14'' x 70 cm - 16 hooks, varnished wood
The new trend from Salvador da Bahia: a timbal with 16 tension rods. This timbal easily pitches up high for the authentic Bahia sound. The 16 tension rods spread the force of the pressure evenly onto the body.
The instrument is made of varnished plywood sheets.
Theoretically you can pitch this timbal up the same as an aluminium timbal with 16 hooks, nevertheless, it sounds nicer and warmer if you leave some of the characteristic low tuning which makes a wood shell sounds especially pretty.
The timba is well-made and of the reliable Contemporanea standard, robust and suitable for street gigs and parades! The rim is smoothed out neatly and equipped with a hand-friendly chromed comfort rim. On the inside level where the tuning position is, an additional reinforcement ring is inserted. All Contemporanea timbals come with super nylon heads which have a special fibreglass layer on the reverse side. Those heads produce a full and open sound with only few overtones. As it is the case with many other wood instruments, the sound is generally a bit warmer and not as sharp-sounding as aluminium instruments.

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.
