Comments about Meinl Tampeiro:
This drum is an interesting cross between a tamborim and a pandeiro. I've not been able to find another like it. It's almost the exact size and weight as Meinl's wood shell tamborim (SKU#445968) with three sets of platinellas added. These appear to be the same 1.5" jingles that are on my Meinl tamborine. I like the darker rubber wood shell and the only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because mine had a small gouge/defect on the interior of the shell. Not a big deal for me as it is not visible during use and I will probably drop/damage it sometime anyway! Sound is largely a matter of technique. When I played it horizontally, the jingles were loudest when rocking the left hand. A heavier stick helped with them sounding on a right handed stroke. Playing this drum in a vertical position, though, really made the jingles stand out. The Floatune system and sound of the drum are exactly the same as Meinl's tamborims. Using pandeiro technique (playing by hand), though, really made me fall in love with it. The sound of the head is very dry played this way, without as much sustain and the jingles are very prominent. I think I may find just as much use for it like this. If you are into Brazilian music or looking for a new hand drum/percussion sound, you might consider giving the tampeiro a try. I was a little disappointed with it backordering, but Musician's Friend did everything they could to get it to me as quickly as they could. Actually, it shipped before their estimated date! All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase and I would definitely recommend it.
