Tamborim

A small stick-beaten frame drum from Brazil used in samba school drumming (also spelled tambourim). There are a few different techniques. One involves holding the drum in the left hand while beating the skin with a frayed stick, held in the right hand, that achieves more of a flam-like sound. The left hand middle finger also can dampen the skin. Another technique involves the left hand turning the drum around the stick for fast rhythms phrased with a particular Brazilian feel.
