The timbal (also spelled timbau or timba) is a hand drum from Bahia used in samba reggae, samba afro, and other music from Brazil, including some samba schools in Rio.  Popularized by the band Timbalada.

14″ x 90cm is the most common size.  Drums are made from both metal and wood; metal shells are louder and more durable.

16 tuning lugs allows for smooth tuning at high tension/pitch.
