Yeah its a pandeiro... from Remo. I mount it using the tambourine cradle from Black Swamp Percussion. The instrument sits on elastic shock cord, so it can move. Has legs for table-top paying -- and a hole so it can be mounted on an ordinary cymbal stand, which is what I do. I will sometimes...
Yesterday at the annual Tug Boat Festival on the Erie Canal, in Waterford NY.
only 5 mounted instruments: saw blade, cowbell, Cajun triangle, pandeiro & rivet cymbal; lots of hand percussion options, plus a washboard (not seen in pic)
