Aluminium cuica size 10" - 10 galvanised lugs, rim in brass optics, painted

Solid alumium cuica in classical 10" format and natural skin on easy-to-handle aluminium rim. 10 galvanised lugs provide an authentic look, the rim is painted in a matt brass colour. In terms of sound you'll find it easy to fit into any well-sized bateria as well as a smaller Samba de mesa combo. This cuica is well made with a simple finish and neatly cut threads. The seam of the body is welded - like all Gope instruments. This contributes to the shell producing a higher and more audible part of the shell resonance as it vibrates better without the interruption of an open seam. Cuicas are a great enrichment for any Samba band. It is fun to play and to watch and they also bring a whole new soundscape to a Samba.

Tip
: If the stick is too thick, grab some sand paper and sand down the bamboo stick carefully until it's thinner. It does get more fragile, but you will find that the cuica will react more easily!

"Gope"

gope-olodum

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.
