The pan flute is a musical initiation instrument composed of several vertical tubes joined together and produces sound blowing tangentially to the opening of the tubes. Karl Schward's 0 / 55f model produces 12 notes.
In 1679, the Schwarz family in Molln started the production of berimbaus and has continued for 13 generations, where the company has been continuously family owned.
Currently, the Schwarz family produces excellent quality berimbaus, in addition to tuned bells, ocarinas, flexatones and pan flutes, and exports to over 40 different countries around the world.
The berimbau is used in folk and house music, as well as jazz and modern music. That's why Schwarz specializes in hand instruments.
