The traditional rhythmic component of Brazilian choro.
Remo’s Choro Pandeiro is designed for today’s modern playing techniques, is lightweight, and features a four combo set of jingles. Remo introduces the unique “Sizzle Zil” jingle design. The Sizzle Zil design combines two sets of brass and one set of German silver convex jingles with a flat stainless steel chrome plated disc sitting in between.
Adding the Sizzle to the Zil are the sound apertures located around the brass jingle perimeter. This lightens the pandeiro's overall weight and projects the sound of the German silver jingle enabling pure, fast articulated beats which allow the drumhead tones to resonate freely.
The Choro Pandeiro is constructed with a replaceable Skyndeep graphic drumhead with Ultratac. This new development in Remo’s drumhead technologies offers enhanced sound with an attractive look. The Skyndeep with Ultratac adds a unique animal-like texture on the drumhead surface that produces low bass notes while adding pliability, making it easy to bend and modulate the pitch.
Also featured on this drumhead is Remo’s O-ring with adhesive that reduces overtones and increases warm bass tones. The drum shell is made with Acousticon, 100% recycled wood fiber, and is elegantly finished with stained antique wood grain veneer.
The Choro Pandeiro is specifically designed for low-pitch tensioning and is not recommended to over tighten the replaceable drumhead. With proper care and maintenance you will enjoy continuous playing with Remo’s Choro Pandeiro, which weighs less than 1 lb.—far lighter than any other similar model in the market today.

Comments about Remo Samba Choro Pandeiro with Brass Jingles:
This pandeiro is probably one of the more exensive mass produced pandeiros on the market. The head has a nice texture that makes for easy jingle rolls. It is also thin so it makes muted and slap tones pretty lively, although I believe the bass tones suffer a little.
The jingles themselves are brass and vented. This makes them really light and trashy. They are however too light and trashy sounding for me. Although very articulate, not very musical. And that speaks for the whole instrument itself. It is light, sensitive, and articulate. It doesn't sound musical to me unfortunately.
