Of the plethora of Pandeiro and tambourine-like products available, this is one of the best! Designed for the gigging percussionist and those wanting a more versatile instrument. It is a less chunky model than the IZ4978 and when the two are compared the first thing that is noticeable is the flat rim. Sitting flush with the drum skin itself it offers a much more authentic playing experience. The Pandeiro is capable of a huge range of different sounds and there are a number of different techniques to get to grips with - all of which are easier without a chunky rim in the way!
This model has a solid, lightweight rim with a decorative rim base in which is housed 4 sets of double jingles. The instrument also has an exceptional, Izzo branded natural goatskin head.
There is a certain technique to playing the pandeiro and whilst it can simply be hit you can create much more rhythmic complexity but using your thumb, wrist and fingers - it really can be like a small drum kit and its worth seeking out videos or tutorials online which can help you get the best out of this small drum.
