Timbal 14'' x 90 cm - aluminium, 16 tension hooks
The new trend from Salvador da Bahia: timbals with 16 hooks. Tune your timbal right up to get some awesome slaps and fantastic sounds! The 16 hooks spread the force by pressure equally all over the shell. 90 cm timbals have a larger resonance body and therefore sound more voluminous than 70 cm timbals.
Aluminium timbals sound sharper than wooden timbals. If you play many gigs with your bloco, you have an advantage by playing an instrument with a very present sound. And if you live in a humid climate zone, at least you don´t need to worry about your instrument as the aluminium timba is not picky about rain - and sounds something great!
A minor downer to be mentioned: More tension hooks, unfortunately, mean more weight. If you plan to walk many street parades, you might be better off with a lighter model.
The polished aluminium in a treat for the eye and the chromed comfort rim takes care of your hands.

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.
