Samba Reggae snare drum 14" x 15 cm with snare wires
This caixa is the typical Samba Reggae snare drum which is played in Bahian Blocos with powerful sound and accustical volume. Instruments by Contemporanea are generally produced with thicker material as other brands, which has an impact on the sound (massive), the weight (a few grammes more) and the price. It is commonly played with a 2-hooked hip strap and has a strong voluminous sound. Very solid and good quality instrument, the body of the caixa is all shiny and polished giving it a smart appearance. The hardware is chromed, the snare wires are traditionally tight-adjustable (without lifting mechanism).
Strong voluminous sound!

Ich bin zwar noch am experimentieren und kriege das mit dem Stimmen noch nicht richtig hin, aber trotzdem bin ich schon ganz begeistert von dieser Caixa.
Perfekt, Artikel wie beschrieben, der Sound ist Klasse
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil
This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in Brazil. Intensive contact to the musicians has always been an important part of their business strategy. They not only sell instruments, but mainly live their music. Every Saturday morning, many musicians meet up in CONTEMPORÂNEA´S music shop in the historic center of São Paulo. In a special back room, musicians of every age play Choro. The pagodeiros meet up in front of the shop for playing their sessions. Many of São Paulo´s smaller and larger Samba schools play CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments.
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Europe
Also in Europe CONTEMPORÂNEA is a popular brand which you sometimes even find in drum- and percussion shops that don´t have so much to do with Samba.
CONTEMPORÂNEA has two lines: CONTEMPORÂNEA LIGHT and CONTEMPORÂNEA PRO.
The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium. Kept in a simple design and not being polished, the LIGHT line can be offered at a lower price and without suffering quality loss in terms of sound or durability. The robust PRO line is made of polished aluminium or wood.
Compared to other brands that also use aluminium for building instruments, CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments made from aluminium stand out by being built of thicker material which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo, but therefore also a higher weight.
