Berimbau and Berimbau Accessories
We have prepared a great selection of Berimbau and Berimbaus accessories that you can review below.
The basic, varnished model is made from premium biriba wood straight from the banks of Bahia. Biriba wood possesses a few characteristics that make it ideal for building berimbaus: strength and flexibility with resistence. This unique combination give it the ability to be bent and strung with enough resistence to keep the wire taut and produce a full, solid sound.
Premium sound and aesthetic beauty meet in this beautifully pirographed berimbau. Made from biriba wood and handcrafted in Bahia, the pirographed berimbaus is carefully detailed by professional Brazilian artisans without compromising sound quality or durability. Each berimbau features unique pirographed markings and engraved workmanship that vary by berimbau.
Crafted with the same attention to quality and hand-detailed care as the full-size berimbaus, these junior berimbaus are made from premium biriba wood and measure approximately 4 feet/122 cm—the smallest berimbaus able to be built without compromising the sound quality. At a shorter length and smaller cabaça (violinha) than the full-size versions, the tone quality produced will be slighly higher than that of a viola berimbau.
Give your child the chance to maneuver the berimbau and master the basic rhythms with a berimbau sized for their age. Crafted with the same attention to quality and hand-detailed care as the full-size berimbaus, the kids berimbaus are made from premium biriba wood and measure approximately 3.5 feet/106 cm. At a shorter length and smaller cabaça (violinha) than the full-size versions, the tone quality produced will be slighly higher than that of a viola berimbau.
Just had your batizado and are out of arames? Made from the same high tension radial used to manufacture premium tires, this arame will fit any conventional berimbau and bring out that crisp sound you’re looking for. Each arame comes pre-assembled with a string attached at one end to tie off the top and a loop at the other to fit the foot of the berimbau.
Rami by the foot! Extra strong fibers that won’t snap under pressure make this Brazilian commodity the preferred twine for professional berimbau makers. Imported from Brazil, this rami is ideal for both stringing your berimbau and tying your cabaça. Rami also sticks to the verga better when being wrapped to string up your berimbau. Only 20 cents per linear foot. Lengths available in multiples of 10 feet.

Each roll is over 600 feet long.
Once you’ve played with a baqueta de tucum, you’ll never settle for anything less. No doubt you’ve heard of this legendary wood from Capoeira lyrics and folklore. Taken from the Brazilian tucum palm, tucum wood is naturally very hard and dense, strong enough make tucum knives, and consequently, very durable baquetas. Baquetas de tucum make it easy to command perfect tone from your berimbau, producing a crisp and full sound.
A popular item, this baqueta is made from bamboo, a strong and versatile wood perfect for making fine knitting needles, instrument reeds, and lucky for us, exceptionally straight baquetas that are both strong and durable. Bamboo baquetas will last longer than a basic baqueta and are carved and sized for optimal playing performance.
The perfect blend of asthetics and quality come together in our hand crafted caixixis. Handmade straight from Bahia, these premium caixixis are available in a variety of colors.
Cracked cabaças leave you with extra vergas? Don’t let them go to waste—choose from gunga, médio, and viola varnished cabaças to re-mix and marry with your verga collection. Like most Capoeiristas know, not every cabaça and verga can be thrown together to make a great berimbau, so we cannot guarantee that the cabaça(s) you receive will complement your verga(s) in size or sound. If you have extra vergas that can be mixed and matched to produce a good result, then an extra cabaça or two is just what you need. This selection of cabaças come from our same line of full-size, varnished berimbaus.
Ever take on a crowded demo balancing three vergas in one hand, with baquetas, caixixis, and cabaças elaborately interwoven through your fingers on the other? Look no further. These berimbau bags are made with the traveling Capoeirista in mind. Built with a sturdy nylon weave and synthetic leather caps, they can hold up to eight berimbaus and survive being tossed in the back of your car. An over-sized zipper top extends all the way to the top of the bag, making it a snap to take vergas in and out! Velcro pockets secure your baquetas and dobraõs for easy carrying, and we’ve even provided a clip on the reverse side to hang your cabaças and caixixis. Each berimbau bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap for added comfort. Choose the color that fits you best, or buy one to match your favorite street abadas!
