Riqs and Pandeiros
This newly designed riq has two carved "scallop" arches between two of the jingle sets to extend the "reach" of the players fingers. This facilitates a super comfortable grip when playing in either soft or cabaret position for any sized hands. As with traditional riqs, this drum has a jingle arrangement of 5 double-row sets, evenly spaced sets.
The Cooperman Pandeiro is inspired by the traditional Brazilian style drum, played gymnastically with the finger pads and hand heel.
