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" white Nylon skin that can be tightened by using the supplied key to adjust the hook tuners. Unlike the larger drums in the Standard series, its shell is made from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) which is very light and produces a crisp, bright sound.
We are proud to be the sole importers for Izzo who have been manufacturing top quality instruments in Brazil for more than 60 years. Their famous Standard Senior series are the first choice for serious samba percussionists around the world.
Izzo are particularly well known for their smaller drums - the pandeiros and tamborims - and these ABS models are particularly good value for money.
