Pandeiro 10" Extra Light - Contemporânea
|amount jingles:||5 sets|
|height of frame:||38 mm|
Extra Light 10'' Pandeiro with brass jingles
One of Contemporanea´s top class pandeiros!
Like all super-light pandeiros the tension hoop is made of flat material. Whenever you see a flatrim pandeiro, the head is wrapped around a a piece of wire instead of being pressed an a ring. Naturally this saves weight! The 5 pairs of jingles are made of brass. A further characteristic of this instrument is its flat wood frame which is especially suitable for percussionists with smaller hands simply because it it easier to hold. If you have big hands you will probably find it more comfortable to hold a pandeiro with a wider frame.
Light pandeiros are ideal for playing the Marcos Suzano technique!
Also beginners will enjoy learning with a light pandeiro. The strength to hold a pandeiro in its playing position still needs to be developed and heavy instruments are often considered frustrating in an early stage of learning.
Beautiful sound and classic look - an absolute blast!
Have more fun playing - go superlight!

Brand description "Contemporânea"
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.
