Rebolo, tantan, tan-tan, tanta, and other similar spellings refer to the same type of drum.  Usually 11-14″ in diameter and 45-60cm long, with one head (skin or napa).  Rebolo often refers to a smaller 11″ and 12″ drum.  Tan tan (etc.) can refer to the larger 14″ drums, or also to 11-12″ drums.

11″ and 12″ are great to be used with a higher tuning along with a lower tan tan or surdo.

14″ tantan can be tuned the same as a surdo for pagode and played in a similar role.
