6" Professional pocket-cuica, inox shell, Luxo modell with brass tension rods and nuts

Small - but not a toy! The 6" Luxo Cuica can do more than you might think! For a grown-up batería maybe you should go for a larger model, but for a small ensemble, a weekend trip with Pagode session or for travelling this one is just perfect. The head is all ready to being played, you might find it 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 shell is made of inox, the hardware is chromed, tension rods and nuts are of fine brass, the instrument is rustical and well worked, the goatskin heads are carefully chosen. Artcelsior is one of the oldest traditional Samba drum makers of Rio, over the last decades they have strongly specialised in building fantastic cuicas. The cuicas are Artcelsior's signboard. You can find them 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 session!

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.
