Timbra Rebolo, 12” aluminum
Timbra 12” aluminum rebolo with skin head on aluminum hoop
Six tuning rods
Regular shape is slightly conical. Extra conical has more taper and a narrower resonant end. Both models have the same skin head and tuning hardware.
Great for pagode. Loud and clear, with a great slap sound from the skin head.
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.
