There's no substitute for a handmade Brazilian pandeiro made specifically for the art of Capoeira, and of course, a little samba de roda. Each of our full-size pandeiros come equipped with a pretreated leather head to guarantee durability and authentic sound. The pandeiro head is secured by a metal rim and adjustable clamps for easy tuning. A layered, amber stained wooden frame ensures strength and even distribution of pressure for optimal tone quality. Each pandeiro includes a metal tuning key used to tighten and loosen the surrounding clamps, changing the tension of the pandeiro head. The tighter the pandeiro head, the more crisp and higher the pitch.
