While technically in the guitar family, we have included this instrument among the bandolins because, being tuned in 5ths (CGDA), it is commonly mandolin/bandolim players who take to it most quickly and easily.

Produced by São Paulo-based Del Vecchio, "Dinâmico" is the name used for their line of resonator instruments, including guitars, tenor guitars, cavaquinhos and bandolins. This style of tenor guitar has been played by many choro musicians, most notably, Garoto and Jacob do Bandolim. This one dates back to the 1950's and, while completely original, is in great shape.
