8" Cuica, galvanised steel plate shell, standard modell

You want a compact cuica but don´t want to miss the sound of a big one? An 8" cuica is a handy size with which you can still go and play in a strong bateria. The head is all ready to play, it might be useful to rub down the dry gambito stick with some sand paper until it is a bit thinner. Like this the head will react more easily to the vibration, but the stick of course will become more fragile. The body is made of steel sheet, a resonance-strong and quite oldschool material. In times where many instruments are built of aluminium or inox, this material is still very popular mainly because of its unique sound. Steel sheet is very affordable, produces an authentic and dry sound and develops a rich patina as time goes by - the surface loses its gloss and turns matt, a typical reaction of steel sheet. Artcelsior is one the oldest traditional Samba drum maker of Rio, over the last decades they have strongly specialised in building great cuicas. The hardware is also zinc-plated, rustical, well elaborated, the goatskin heads are well chosen. The cuicas are Artcelsior's signboard. They build cuicas in many different styles, sizes, metall types and optical details. The cuica is an extraordinary instrument, fearly difficult to play well but great fun.
A very diverse, original instrument an in any case a great enrichment for any Samba school!

ARTCELSIOR in Brazil

ARTCELSIOR is Rio´s most traditional company for building and creating new instruments. They changed their brand name several times (Excelsior and Lecsom, among others), nevertheless for the last decades they have been producing instruments for Rio´s samba schools. ARTCELSIOR´s people know exactly, how samba instruments are supposed to sound. They constantly receive feedback from the small to the large Rio samba schools. Together with the experience of thousands of sambistas, the drums have become as successful as they are today.
ARTCELSIOR drums are rustical, functional and sound great!
Tradition indeed commits!

For the Brazilian market, the drums are made of galvanized sheet metal as well as of polished aluminium sheet. Being specialised in metal processing, ARTCELSIOR also makes brass instruments such as saxophones, trumpets and trombones besides the percussion instruments.

Artcelsior

ARTCELSIOR in Europe

ARTCELSIOR´s drums also were amongst the first drums available in Europe in the late 1980s. In those times they still used their brand called Lecsom and the small European Samba community played on the original drums from Rio de Janeiro. Even today and despite of having loads of competition, ARTCELSIOR still counts to many sambistas´favourite brand of instruments.

Instruments

ARTCELSIOR produces all kinds of instruments which are being played in the escolas de Samba, the Pagode and the Samba de Mesa. ARTCELSIOR cuicas still set the standard and enjoy cult status.
