Gambito with string for cuica


Your cuica stick broke? Never mind, just put in a new one.

Wetten the cuica skin in the middle until it get´s soft, then carefully open the knot with which the gambito is tied in and take out the rests of the stick.

The new gambito you can sand down a bit with a piece of sand paper depending on how thin you like to play it. Then place it in the middle of the soaked skin and tie a new knot. The skin has to be really wet and soft in the middle, otherwise you won´t be able to put in the new stick. The best is, you get somebody to help you. One can hold the gambito and the skin, the other can tie the knot. With a bit of practice you´ll soon get the trick!



The cuica skin with the new gambito will need at least over night to dry (important! don´t use hairdryer, heating or sun to dry the head as it will get brittle and tear), therefore cuiqueiros usually take a spare head with a tied-in stick with them. If it does happen, that your gambito breaks during a gig, you are prepared and just put on your spare cuica head. Then you have time to change the broken gambito and until the next day your new 'exchange' head will be dry and ready again.

Note about spare parts:

We recommend that you always purchase spare parts of the same brand as your instrument to ensure fit and function. We cannot assume any warranty for different-brand combinations. If you are looking for a spare part that you cannot find on our site, please contact us!

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´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.


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.
