Tamborim 6" - wood - Contemporânea
|height of frame:||50 mm|
Wood tamborim - 8 lugs, frame hight 50mm - Contemporanea
Tamborim players who prefer the feeling of a wood instrument to metal will love this one. The frame is a 50mm medium-high one, the 8 hooks and tension hoop are chromed. A wooden frame sounds warmer than a metal frame and of course it also has a very different haptics - warmer and softer than metal. In exchange tuning it up very high is limited as wood of course is not as sturdy as aluminium. However, Contemporanea has created a professional and robust tamborim which is absolutely made for bateria playing!
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.
