9" allrounder cuica for every occasion

Not only dancers appreciate the participation of a cuica in a bateria. The small 'hum pot' contributes with a multitude of peculiar and funny tones like singing, squeaking, whining, sighing and happy sounds to any bateria, small Samba ensemble or Pagode band. Producer Gope from the São Paulo area in Brazil builds this solid model with an aluminium shell and chromed tension rods. The hoop is black and the hide head uses an aluminium frame. The shell is welded - typical for all Gope instrument. A welded shell has a different vibration character as the instrument body is able to transfer tones with a higher content of shell sound.

A 9" inch cuica is only slightly more compact than a 10" cuica; volume and resonance in this size category rather depend on the thickness of the shell sheet. Gope is known for its ultra-light instrument construction, if you want a solid and light instrument in the middle price range, this cuica should be just what you are looking for.

"Gope"

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.
