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