Atabaque 100 cm - Lê with traditional sisal string tuning

Atabaques are traditional Brazilian hand drums which can be mainly found in ritual Candomblé and in newer times also in Capoeira.  The tuning system with sisal strings is a traditional and established way to pitch a drum and like this connects the drum with its African roots. The atabaque can be tuned by drawing wood wedges into the the metal ring. The stronger you pitch the wedges, the higher the head will be tuned. To relax the head, loosen the wedges. The atabaque is built with barrel technique, the skin is shaved and the shell is cast in an iron ring. The stand has also two steel rings for more stabilty and weight, the upper rim where the atabaque sits is padded.

Measurements:
Instrument height without stand: approx. 100cm
Instrument height with stand: approx: 119cm
Diameter head: approx: 10"

"Gope"

GOPE is a family-run business from the area around São Paulo. Today the company is being run in its third generation by the grand daughter of the firm´s founder.


The brand GOPE has been producing drums and smallpercussion instruments for over 50 years now. When the company was founded, there was already a small workshop in which drumsets were manufactured.

In 1962, the production of the typical Samba instruments began, iniciated by Humberto Rodella, the son of the founder. The company kept growing and after several relocations in São Paulo, GOPE finally found the right place for building a large production hall in Embu Guaçu, a suburb of São Paulo.

gope-expoSince then GOPE produces in Embu Guaçu everything from the Agogô to the Zabumba, a wide range of percussion instruments, and only recently also various wind instruments.

GOPE has always kept in close touch with the musicians. The ideas and proposals for modifications that they received from many of those contacts, have always had much influence in the development of new instruments and improvement of production.
