Alfaia Uni - Maracatu drum

Simple design, light-weighted shell made out of several layers of plywood with a unicolour wood texture pattern.

Reinforcement hoops are inserted at both the top and bottom end.
Very stable tension hoops both made of 2 layers of solid wood.
The outer layer of the alfaia is made of unicolored veneer.
Foam material on the inside muffles the tone and produces the typical Maracatu thunder.
Beautiful goatskin heads for both batter head and resonance head.
Traditional string system for tension and tuning.
Durable nylon tension strings.

Barravento is the leading traditional alfaia manufacturer in Brazil. Their beautiful alfaias are not only played by all the traditionalists and outstanding Maracatú musicians, but also by the celebrities of the MPB, like Daniela Mercury or Chico Science´s Nação Zumbi.
