What is the difference between Pandeiro and the common Tambourine?
There are two important differences between a pandeiro and the common tambourine:
1. The tension of the head on the pandeiro can be tuned, allowing the player a choice of high and low notes.
2. Also, the metal jingles (called platinelas in Portuguese) are cupped, creating a crisper, drier and less sustained tone on the pandeiro than on the tambourine. This provides clarity when swift, complex rhythms are played.
