Ever since the first time I traveled to Brazil and brought back a handmade pandeiro and authentic caixa, I have hand-picked the best quality instruments available in Brazil to develop my own playing and improve the sound of my ensembles. These instruments have the specific qualities of materials, construction, shapes, and timbres needed for traditional sounds and techniques.  I’m committed to supplying quality instruments that I would use myself and recommend to others.
