It may not be possible to reinvent the wheel anew … but it really looks like somebody has managed to invent a completely new type of Caixa and Repinique by merely replacing the solid corpus with a sturdy, bodiless construction.
… but Brazilian percussion is just a few clicks away!

In the past we have offered Artcelsior caixas and repeniques in 2 different product lines: one version with aluminium shell and chromed tension rods and rims, and as alternative all in zinced steel. Two options with very different sound characteristics ( steel shells produce a significant dry sound!) and therefore an important part of our assortement. Since instruments with a steel shell are are much heavier we offer surdos only with an aluminium body and chromed steel hardware.
Chrome plating has become so expensive in the past few years that instruments with chrome plated hardware have more or less disappeared from the brazilian market. In order to be able to offer Artcelsior instruments for reasonable prices in the future, we have decided to follow this trend and from now on can supply not only caixa and repinique with zinced hardware, but also all sizes of surdos.
