Aluminium shell caixa de guerra 14" x 17cm with strings and snare wires

Brand new from Rio´s special request Samba kitchen:

Large 14" aluminium version with stringed superior head and snare wires on the resonance head.

A really flexible instrument for Rio style baterias, especially if you only have a few caixas in your group. If your caixa section only has 1-3 players, you might find the sound too thin. With the large version of the double string caixa and its snare wire feature, a new sound spectrum appears, supporting the white sound effect. Also, 14" caixas can be tuned lower and due to their larger diameter provide a fat and voluminous sound.

 

Experiment in different sound directions and find out which is the best 'molho' (juiciness of sound) for your group:

Batter head - resonance:
 This combination contains more snare wire character, the caixa ís not tuned as high as standard caixas, yet more density of white sound appears - juicy!

Batter head - batter head: 
Try changing the resonance head for a normal nylon head. You can pitch up the caixa to the typical high Rio style level to have a dryer sound with more string than snare wires - fat sound!

IVSOM in Brazil

IVSOM is a small producer of Samba instruments from Rio de Janeiro. The brand is a wordplay: Its owner´s name is Ivson, the Braziliain word for tune is 'som'. Before becoming self-employed, Ivson absolved a profound formation in the metalworking craft sector. Ivson has been an active sambista for many years. He plays caixa for Mocidade, his wife and business partner Luciana plays the chocalho. Therefore he is very close to his clients and knows exactly, what is in demand. Ivson actively participates in the production of his instruments and makes excellent-quality instruments in a very well organized workshop. Some of Rio´s major Samba schools play his instruments. Quite frecuently Ivson surprises us with new features and innovations. Due to his close contact to the Samba scene, he is often the first to convert buzzing ideas and or incitations into useful inspiration for making new instruments. The IVSOM 'vasado' caixas and repiniques created the trend of instruments without bodies.

IVSOM in Europe
IVSOM instruments have gained high recognition amongst Hardcore Rio Sambistas in Europe within the last couple of years. Especially their good workmanship and the excellent sound of the drums have attracted the percussionist´s attenention over here. The number of IVSOM fans is growing larger each year.

Percussion instrumens
IVSOM drums have a couple of untypical characteristics. For example, the tension rods are tightly screwed to the tension hoop. This link is very stable and absolutely free of rattling noises, but a bit more time-consuming in its montage. The surdos have a neat detail concerning the rims of the body where the head rests. The body´s wall is rimmed around a 10 mm flat bar. With this the corpus is a lot more stable than other bodies where wire is used for reinforcement. Like this the drums obtain a smooth and flat rim for ideal head fitting. IVSOM´s reference product is the rocar with 20 jingles.
