SAMBA TIP: HOW TO CHANGE A CUICA STICK


HOW DO I CHANGE A CUICA STICK?

An experienced cuiqueiro always brings a spare head with a sanded gambito. Changing a broken cuica stick only takes a few minutes, but the skin needs time to dry afterwards. If you cuica stick (gambito or palito) does happen to break, no need to buy an entire new cuica head. Just do it yourself - changing the stick is super easy and it only takes little effort to take out the broken stick and replace it with a new one.
For that you will need:

- a new bamboo stick
- some normal tap water
- a piece of waxed string (included with all Kalango-purchased gambitos)
- a Samba buddy to help you tie the know around the stick
- less than 5 min. time
