Atabaque Rum 11'' x 120cm - with stand - Gope
Atabaque 120 cm - Rum (biggest size, lowest voice) with wood stand
Atabaques are commonly found in Candomblé - the ritual drumming of Brazil's heritage. The traditional Brazilian hand drums are usually played in a set of three voices: Lê , Rumpi , Rum. But also in Capoeira or in Samba de Roda one can find atabaques. In the set, this atabaque is a Rum, the largest size used for the lowest voice.
The atabaques are solidly built and can be used for many different music styles. A simple wooden shell and carefully picked skins in the right strength help feature the atabaque's typical warm and open sound.
A simple wooden stand comes with the instrument.
Instrument height without stand: approx. 127cm
Instrument height with stand: approx. 139cm
Customer reviews for "Atabaque Rum 11'' x 120cm - with stand"
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.
Since 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.
