Premium sound and aesthetic beauty meet in our beautifully pirographed berimbaus. Made from biriba wood and handcrafted in Bahia, our pirographed berimbaus are carefully detailed by professional Brazilian artisans without compromising sound quality or durability. Each berimbau features unique pirographed markings and engraved workmanship that vary by berimbau. All berimbaus are shipped pre-married and complete with an arame, natural baqueta, caixixi, stone dobrão, and matching cabaça. Because each pirographed design is unique, patterns may vary from photo.They are shipped in two boxes and can arrive a day or two apart.
It is not uncommon for berimbaus to have thin cracks running vertically along the verga. Biriba (the wood used to make berimbaus) can crack during production, but these cracks do not affect the strength or sound of the instrument. Please click here to see our care and use instructions.
Virtual Capoeira’s berimbau shipping policy provides you further assurance that your berimbau is in good working condition. VirtualCapoeira.com requires that each berimbau be strung and matched to a cabaça immediately before shipping. This is done both to ensure that the berimbau is strong and in working condition as well as to match the verga with a suitable cabaça that together will make a great berimbau. The process of testing vergas and cabaças together is called “marrying a berimbau” and this is done after your order is placed. This is part of our standard quality control to ensure that our customers receive great berimbaus with excellent sound.
