Capoeira Mestre Calango was nice enough to do a couple of short recordings on the berimbau for me. A berimbau is a one stringed instrument with the string made from the inside liner of a truck tire, it has a claxia(sp?) a shaker with it and is modulated by placing the gourd against the stomach and removing it. Done with HDP2 and two Sennheiser mics 66 67, was in 24 bit 96Khz, downconverted to 16b at 44.1, a relatively clean recording at a very high level.
