Chocalho Pro - 30 chromed jingles - Contemporânea
|amount jingles:||30 pairs|
|weight (net):||0,9 kg|
Chocalho / Rocar Pro with wide aluminium frame
30 pairs of chrome sheet jingles (60 individual platelets)
A chocalho must not miss in any bateria! Its sound brings in a completely different aspect and is the musical counterpart to many of the other bateria instruments. The clear and tinkling sound of chocalhos is heard well throughout the bateria and is also a good effect with which you can get your crowds to go bananas!
The frame is stable aluminium and built slightly wider than the Slim modell. Some sambistas like to wrap a piece of fabric around the handles which might make it more comfortable to hold. The jingles are made of chrome sheet, the sound is fearly dry. Classic style instrument!
Customer reviews for "Chocalho Pro - 30 chromed jingles"(1)
Nicest chocalho I've ever played. I had one earlier for another brand and sold it due to it being too harsh and loud and jangly in all the wrong ways. This one has way more expressive range, a more pleasant timbre due to the metals and construction used, but can get loud if you need it to.
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.
