Tamborims are used in many styles of Brazilian music, including samba (in a bateria or samba school), pagode, choro, MBP, jazz, and more.

Tamborims with plastic head are best for louder use with a wood or plastic stick. Tamborims with a skin head are great for lower volume playing for choro, pagode, and jazz styles with wood sticks or brushes, or even with hands.

Flexible plastic sticks for tamborim are available here.
