Tamborim 6'' - inox - Izzo
|height of frame:||55 mm|
Aluminium tamborim with 6 hooks and 5,5cm frame height
The feel is ideal for old and new turning techniques and everyone who likes tams with large hook gaps.
- No sharp edges! The tam naturally has a perfectly rounded contact area where the head lies on the frame, but also the edge facing the hand is bent a 180° and which makes it a real pleasure to hold.
- Top-tunability! The brackets are cleverly positioned inbetween the groves so that under high pressure they can lean on the shell.
- Space for the tuning key! A well-known problem - old tamborim hands know exactly what we're talking about. Often there is so little space between the nut and the shell that one can hardly slip on the tuning key. IZZO has built this modell in a way that tuning from now on is a child's play.
- The tamborim is excellent quality and amongst comparable instruments a pretty good bargain.
Brand description "Izzo"
For quite some years now, instrument builder IZZO remains among the top brands of Brazilian Samba percussios. It has been a while that IZZO instruments from São Paulo were rather simple percussion instruments which were very popular in Brazil due to their good price range.
Then they began to constantly increase their standard of Samba instruments until they reached a top-class level. By now they have become a serious manufacturer with a wide range of very well manufactured instruments which are known throughout the international market.
IZZO achieved a special coup when in 2010 they lanced their top brand TIMBRA. TIMBRA instruments were 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.
Today IZZO is completely in the league of the old-established traditional brands of Samba instruments.
