Timbal 14'' x 80 cm - wood shell with 16 hooks - crispy, warm street timbal sound in compact size
80cm timbals are exactly what we were still missing! They are the perfect size inbetween the large 90cm standard size and the short 70cm version.
If you are looking for a compact timbal without loosing the feature of the great sound you get with large resonance bodies and like the warm sound of wood instruments, then the 80cm timbal is just about perfect for you. The diameter is 14'' - same as the big timbals, the only real difference is that there are 10cm less length on the shell. Wood sounds warmer than aluminium instruments. If you have already heard a 16 hook timbal, then you will know the difference, the sound can make and appreciate the high pitch you can achieve with this tension technique. High and crispy slaps, voluminous open tones and a rich bass are the sound characteristics of this Brazilian hand drum.
Many Axé Pop band, but also some of the traditional blocos have been going along for some years already with the trend of tuning timbals extremely high. The genious idea of spreading the tension onto more and stronger hardware makes this possible easily. This trend would not be possible on a regular timbal. Wood instruments with these characteristics have additional reinforcement elements in order to provide durability when being high pitched.
More hardware (hooks, reinforcing material) naturally means more weight, too. This shorter timbal version might be a good inbetween-solution if you want a 16 hook instrument but want to save weight through the smaller sized shell.
Handsome, well made instrument with crispy sound, rustical look and adaptable in a great range of music styles.

Super son et légère . Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de housse de transport livré avec.
In 2010, IZZO managed to pull off a remarkable milestone by lancing their high-end show brand TIMBRA TOP PERCUSSION.
All TIMBRA Samba instruments have been developed in close cooperation with renowned percussionists. The objective was to create convincing series of instruments with great sound, optically outstanding and adecuate for stage gigs. Especially the timbals, made of either wood or aluminium, set new standards with their 16 tuning hooks, extraordinary design and spectacular sound.
TIMBRA builds all kinds of Samba instruments from wood and aluminium surdos, cuicas, rebolos to tantans and timbals. A special eye-catcher was one of the brand's first lines - the Carlinhos Brown Signature Series with timbals and bacurinhas with elaborate colour prints and designs on vinyls. High-quality workmanship, authentic sounds and flashy designs are still the main trademarks of TIMBRA.
