Just like a tambourine, the shallow pandeiro drum has metal jingles (or zils) attached to its shell. It’s played with the hand and can create all sorts of interesting sounds and fast rhythms to colour samba music.
This model has a single 10" synthetic skin that can be tightened by using the supplied key to adjust the hook tuners. Unlike the larger drums in the Junior series, its shell is made from pine which produces a slightly softer, warmer sound, and is fitted with 6 pairs of stainless steel zils.
We are proud to be the sole importers for Izzo who have been manufacturing top quality instruments in Brazil for more than 60 years.
The larger drums in their new Junior series are built using thinner aluminium making them lighter and cheaper - perfect for younger players. An ingenious ridged design makes them just as strong (and loud!) as the standard range, meaning they'll easily survive the everyday perils of the classroom.
Izzo are particularly well known for their smaller drums - the pandeiros and tamborims - and even these lightweight Junior models are made to an extremely high standard.
