Chocalho / Rocar Acústico with aluminium body - 20 pairs of galvanised zinc sheet jingles (55 individual platelets)
Now with less weight!
The revised model of this chocalho has come with 2 big improvements: the handles are now made of plastic and therefore more comfortable to hold. Much more important is that the manufacturer has reduced the weight to a level that this massive aluminium chocalho in no way stands behind the wooden models. If you are into fat, authentic chocalho sound, you've found the right one!
Classical zinc sheet jingles that sound so authentic that you might think you are in a bateria rehearsal somewhere in Rio. An anatomical shaped handel for perfect handling, clean processing and good portion of style with glittering hologram sheeting. The shell of the rocar is completely made of aluminium and weights a little more than the wood modell. To save weight, several large holes are punched out of the middle of the shell. This also amplifies the tone coming from the middle of the instrument and is then thrown back through the apertures. A kind of a sound chamber it is, a chocalho which amplifies itself! The handles are attached to the main body with screws.
A loud, penetrant and authentic chocalho!
Zinc sheet jingles - great sound but dirty fingers: zinc sheet produces abrasion!

Produit de qualité, conforme à mon attente avec une belle sonorité.
Petit bémol ... peut être un peu lourd
the body of the shaker being hollow is now a sound box.
Un son de malade , ça envoie +++, les voisins ne vont pas apprécier ...
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.
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.
