Our products: Pandeiros, platinelas and accessories

Pandeiros

Our pandeiros are manufactured by hand in Portugal and the Netherlands. 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.

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).

 

According to the § 19 UStG we do not charge the German sales tax, and consequently do not account it (small business).

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.

The Little Ones can be used on top of your jingles to make them move less in the slot, if your slots are too big. This will make the sound tighter and quieter with more control. The Little Ones are made of 0,3mm thick bronze with a slight curve hammered into them.

In addition to our jingles we offer special custom-made pins to hold the jingles. The pins are made of softer brass instead of hard steel, which will guarantee your jingles a long lifetime, as the pins wear out before the valuable jingles. They will preserve the jingles as well as the sound of them and they will even add a classy look to your pandeiro!

These custom-made soft rubbers will gradually reduce the volume of your jingle-sound without changing its character. Even though our jingles are well-balanced with the sound volume of your skin, you may need to reduce their loudness, for example in a delicate studio situation. The rubbers are easily attachable on top of your jingles without the need to remove the jingles. With our Damping Dude system you can easily adapt the dynamics to your personal needs.
