Timbal is a Brazilian percussive instrument derived from Caxambu used mainly in the cultural afro-brazilian niche. It became popular in Brazil during the 90’s with a group called Timbalada founded by musician Carlinhos Brown.
The traditional Timbal has 14 inches in width and 35 inches in height. The instrument has rich harmonics and has great rhythmic power. Very popular with musical genres such as Axé and Pagode. Currently the instrument is also used in other genres like Sertanejo and Pop.
The Timbal was recorded by the excellent musician and composer Marcos Nascimento (Sérgio Pererê/ Tambolelê) exploring rich rhythms from different styles such as Maracatu, Afoxé and Samba Duro.
“SOUNDS GREAT! SOUNDS AUTHENTIC! I am using a Cuica for a remix of a song and it definitely brought out the life of the song! Loved it!”
“This is a nice, well-played kit with considerable nuance. I compared this with XLN’s Addictive Drums Jazz Brushes, and Muletone is so much more subtle and real.”
“In terms of quality, the Muletone Audio library is the best, having deeper sampling than anything else out there for the equivalent instruments and also offering different samples based on how long of a sustain is desired”
“If you love World percussion virtual instruments and you like Brazil then you need to know Muletone Audio because they make the very best ones.”
“…This is really helpful if you want to spice up your compositions with some shakerish elements… Does what it offers very well. A cool opposite towards all that boomish wacky epic percussion stuff”
“Great Drum Tool! Both excellent sounds and patterns for brazilian type of songs.”
“I really do love what you make, the instruments sound terrific! And I appreciate the customer support. “
“Really natural sounding Brazilian percussion. I bought this to do some dance/club music in the style of Buraka Sound System”
