Remo's Choro Pandeiro is designed for today's modern playing techniques, is lightweight, and features a four combo set of jingles. Remo introduces the unique "Sizzle Zil" jingle design. The Sizzle Zil design combines two sets of brass and one set of German silver convex jingles with a flat stainless steel chrome plated disc sitting in between.
Adding the Sizzle to the Zil are the sound apertures located around the brass jingle perimeter. This lightens the pandeiro's overall weight and projects the sound of the German silver jingle enabling pure, fast articulated beats which allow the drumhead tones to resonate freely.
The Choro Pandeiro is constructed with a replaceable Skyndeep graphic drumhead with Ultratac. This new development in Remo's drumhead technologies offers enhanced sound with an attractive look. The Skyndeep with Ultratac adds a unique animal-like texture on the drumhead surface that produces low bass notes while adding pliability, making it easy to bend and modulate the pitch.
Also featured on this drumhead is Remo's O-ring with adhesive that reduces overtones and increases warm bass tones. The drum shell is made with Acousticon, 100% recycled wood fiber, and is elegantly finished with stained antique wood grain veneer.
The Choro Pandeiro is specifically designed for low-pitch tensioning and is not recommended to over tighten the replaceable drumhead. With proper care and maintenance you will enjoy continuous playing with Remo's Choro Pandeiro, which weighs less than 1 lb.-far lighter than any other similar model in the market today.

Comments about Remo Samba Choro Pandeiro with Brass Jingles:
Each Pandeiro has its own different sound, there is not a certain way a Pandeiro should sound. Whether you like one or the other is a matter of personal preference. This one has a wonderful skin that gives a powerful low tone free of unwanted overtones. The pitch is very easy to bend while playing, and it can be bent a lot. It is very expressive. The skin is rough to the touch at first, but it softens very quickly and then you may like the feature because the right hand won't slide while stroking. The jingles (or "pratinelas") are neither too loud nor too bright, they sound rich but contained. The overall sound of this Pandeiro is beautiful, elegant, and authentically brazilian. Because of the low tone of the skin and the contained sound of the jingles, this Pandeiro fits best in a comping role where it provides more basic grooves than ornaments. When its time to solo arrives it will surprise with its consistent an expressive pitch bending, but the jingles will never sound sizzling bright. If you want bright jingles, you can get the same Pandeiro with chrome jingles. I haven't heard that one. (I have several pandeiros with different sounds, and this one complements very well my collection.) The weight is 540 grams, a little bit on the heavy side, but not too heavy to disqualify it. The quality of the construction is excellent. A wonderful instrument, expensive but well worth it.
