Cuica 8" with wooden shell and rim in brass optics

A wood cuica is something else! Its weight is comparable to cuicas with metal shells in the same size, however, its sound has a slightly warmer touch. 8" is quite a compact size, easy to take on a Samba trip and suitable for playing in a small bateria or a Pagode / Samba de Mesa. The head is fitted ready to play, the bamboo stick might need to be sanded down slightly when dry with a piece of sandpaper. The head will then react more easily. Keep in mind that a thinner stick will also be more sensitive. The shell is made of solid wood with a clear paint finish. Cuicas are extraordinary instruments which can often be seen in Brazilian Samba schools and also have their earnt place in 'chamber music' versions of Samba like the Pagode and Samba de Mesa. Versatile, original and in any case a real enrichment for many Brazilian music styles!

Brand description "Gope"

gope-olodum

GOPE is a family-run business from the area around São Paulo. Today the company is being run in its third generation by the grand daughter of the firm´s founder.


The brand GOPE has been producing drums and smallpercussion instruments for over 50 years now. When the company was founded, there was already a small workshop in which drumsets were manufactured.

In 1962, the production of the typical Samba instruments began, iniciated by Humberto Rodella, the son of the founder. The company kept growing and after several relocations in São Paulo, GOPE finally found the right place for building a large production hall in Embu Guaçu, a suburb of São Paulo.

gope-expoSince then GOPE produces in Embu Guaçu everything from the Agogô to the Zabumba, a wide range of percussion instruments, and only recently also various wind instruments.

GOPE has always kept in close touch with the musicians. The ideas and proposals for modifications that they received from many of those contacts, have always had much influence in the development of new instruments and improvement of production.
