Tips for cuica skins:
Cuica skins are a natural product made of goat skin and therefore quite sensitive. The skins should always be loosened after playing or for storage. Please store natural skins at normal room temperature. Do not store in damp areas, near heating or in a car. Heat and dry air make natural skins brittle and put them under extreme tension, which can cause the skin to tear. Cuica heads also break easily if you accidentally touch the skin too often with a damp cloth from the inside when playing. The water softens the skin around the knot, the high tension will stretch and eventually might tear the skin. If you are putting on a new skin and need to wetten it (e.g. because the rim is twisted), please make sure to let it dry completely before putting tension on it. This usually takes overnight. We strongly advise against speeding up drying by using a hair dryer, heating or direct sunlight which might cause damage to the skin.

Information about mounting hide heads:
Natural heads tend to twist when they are unmounted due to different air humidity and temperature. When you are ready to put the head on your instrument and see that it is twisted, moisten (not soak!) the head carefully with a kitchen sponge, then put it on a flat surface and push the drum shell in the rim from above. Put your drum loosely back together and wait until the head is dry before putting any tension on it. Let it dry slowly in the air (best overnight), don't use heaters, hairdryers and don't leave it in the sun as it will make the head brittle and prone to tear.



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

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.
