Remo's Choro Pandeiro is designed for today's modern playing techniques and is 10 x 1.75 inches. It is light weight and features a four combo set of jingles in five slots. Remo introduces the unique "Sizzle Zil" jingle design. The Sizzle Zil design combines two brass and one 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 pandeiros 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 weighting only 540 grams, which is far lighter then any other similar model in the market today.
