All berimbau orders will ship in 2 separate containers (1 for the berimbau vergas and baquetas, 1 for the cabaças, caxixis and dobrões) Tracking information will be emailed to you when the items have shipped.
All of our berimbaus are handmade in Salvador Bahia, and ship locally from Austin, TX. Each berimbau verga (stick) is made of Biriba, has been hand-sanded and lightly varnished in order to preserve the quality and integrity of the instrument.
The top of the vergas have been capped with a thick, circular piece of leather to secure the arame when stringing the berimbau. The cabaças have also been hand-sanded, lightly varnished, and shaped in order to produce the best quality sound possible for each gunga, medio, and viola.
Please note that all of our berimbaus are handmade in Salvador, Bahia Brazil and may have varying degrees of imperfections which make each instrument unique.
