Pandeiros

Our pandeiros are manufactured by hand in Portugal and Germany. We designed a light-weight instrument that feels good in the hand and sounds great. The skin is of first quality directly from Brazil, the rim is made of solid hardwood and the jingles are our own best-selling series of superb sounding combinations of metals. A unique feature on our pandeiros is the mechanism of changing the jingles. With this invention you can change the jingles easily without removing the skin.

 

To listen to the sound of our Pandeiros and different jingle-series, click on the player below the picture.

All sound-examples are played by Matthias Haffner on different Haffner-Perander-Pandeiros with new skins that are not modified in any way. The sound-examples were recorded with an AKG 430 condenser microphone from above and a Shure SM 57 from below. The sound-files are raw - no additional processing was used.

 

Here is a video where Roman Sielert plays all the different HP Platinelas on the same HP Pandeiro.

The HP Choro Pandeiro "Jorginho" is modeled after the pandeiros of master Jorginho do Pandeiro from Rio de Janeiro. He was a legend and the creator of the modern pandeiro technique.

Our Choro Pandeiro has a 10,5" diameter and six pairs of specially designed brass jingles, to replicate the sound and feel of the pandeiros that Jorginho played. The rim stands a bit proud of the skin to give the player a better grip.

This pandeiro offers incredible projection from the jingles and massive punch from the skin. It is loud, bright and powerful.

We offer the Choro Pandeiro in Wicked Walnut and Sweet Cherry rims.

Platinelas (Jingles)

We offer several different sets of jingles. Each one can be made to fit a slot height of 12mm, 13mm, 14mm and 15mm. For example, our C series is named C12, C13, C14 and C15 depending on the height of the slot into which it is to fit. The basic set includes five (5) “pairs“ of jingles, in total 20 pieces of metal (each “pair“ is made up of 4 individual pieces), except for the A-series. Most pandeiros with a diameter of 10 inches will have five pairs of jingles, while most pandeiros with a diameter of 11“ will have six pairs and so forth. If you need more than five pairs just let us know and we supply as many as you need (choose the amount from the drop-down menu).

A series: Alu Mighty

The A series is made of aluminium. It is different from all our other jingles both in sound and composition. It has six pieces of metal, some of them recycled, and the sound it produces is dry and shaker-like. It is pleasant and full in character but with little projection. This jingle is great for funky stuff with low bass tones.
