Handcrafted 3-strand tamborim beater by Luciano Japa, extra long - Pro stick for 3-1 technique

Product overview

THE stick for absolute tamborim geeks! Authentic tamborim trend from Brazil for advanced tamborim players who want to pursue or develop a powerful playing style or also for tamborim freshmen who really want to go for it. The stick is 39cm long and therefore works best for the 'old' 3-1 technique. Due to the use of a high-density resin, the strands are very stiff and extremely tightly wrapped, so that an incredibly powerful, precise sound can be achieved with only 3 pins. Japa himself has an exceptionally powerful playing style, to which he has adapted his own creation in design and function. His many years in the professional Samba scene have helped to develop a tamborim beater that meets the demand not only to play loud and to the point, but also to be able to execute the 3-1 technique with endurance. A special feature of the stick is the disproportionately long handle, which is actually longer than the part of the strands you play with. The whole beater is designed that, even though you only have 3 strands, with a developed playing technique you'll be able to achieve incredible precision supported by the rigidity of the stick.

Particularly suitable for:

  • 3-1 'old' turning technique
  • advanced / pro tamborim players with solid technique and stamina
  • beginners who value authentic gear and playing style
  • precise, powerful playing
  • people who prefer a clean, clear sound


  • very long strands
  • overlong handle
  • very rigid wrapping
  • high density of the stick material provides a powerful, loud sound
  • plastic loop for fin tuning of flexibility
  • conical tips

Not suitable for:

  • 2-1 'new' turning technique: the sticks are too hard and do not bend into the turning movement
