Product Information

What's included

The Tamborim is held with your off hand with the thumb either crossing the rim and resting on the drumhead, or gripping the frame. The other fingers are curled under the rim, with the index typically applying and releasing pressure on the underside of the head to achieve higher or lower notes.

The beater is held with the strong hand and the head is struck a little off centre. A playing technique called ‘virado’ is often used, in which the drum is flipped upside down in the middle of the pattern, which produces one note that is slightly delayed, giving the samba its characteristic lilt.

The instrument may also be struck on the rim but be careful not to hit too hard as rim shots can cause the whip/beater to fracture more quickly.

Guarantee

The best quality materials and manufacturing methods are used to make our Brazilian Samba instruments and accessories and they’re designed for serious, long term use in the classroom. Looked after properly the instruments will give many years of satisfaction, and under normal use the materials and workmanship are guaranteed as follows:

Surdos, Caixas, Repiniques, Tamborim and Pandeiro shells – 1 year. But take special care with bigger drums as the aluminium shells can get dented if treated roughly. This won’t affect the sound but it will certainly spoil the appearance.

Drum heads – 6 months. But always use appropriate beaters (please ask us if you’re not sure) and beware sharp points. Drum heads are the most fragile part of any drum and you should expect to have to replace them regularly, especially if they’re getting lots of use. Please note that the hard plastic skins of caixas, repeniques and tamborims may quickly show dent marks, but that they can still be played.

Samba Hand Percussion – 1 year. Agogo bells and Ganza are tough and will take plenty of use but don’t drop them, especially on to hard surfaces, or throw them around.

Storage/carry bags and accessories – 2 years. But keep bags away from sharp points and don’t over-fill them or force the zips.

If you should get any problems with any of our Brazilian Samba instruments or accessories, please take photos of the issues and email them to us with the order/invoice number and a brief description of how the problem arose and we’ll get back to you right away.

Do remind your players that Samba instruments are not indestructible and that , like all musical instruments, they need to be treated with care and respect, even when played with enthusiasm!
