Ganza simple - 39 cm - Gope
|weight (net):||0,4 kg|
Large shaker for big effect! Being the connection between the different instruments in a group, a ganzá plays an important role. It might be quite easy to learn, but it also is a responsable timekeeping instrument and playing it tight over a longer period is not as easy as it sounds!
In any case, the options for ganzás are relatively manageable:
Gope ganzás are made of aluminium.
The filling is small metall plates.
A large ganzá like this one produces a present and voluminous sound.
A ganzá of this size is easily big enough to be heard in your bateria!
Strong timekeeper for your bloco!
Customer reviews for "Ganza simple - 39 cm"(1)
Die Ganzas von Gope sind Top. Die Füllmenge, Stabilität, das Händling, der Klang - alles stimmt. Besonders gut gefallen mir die kleinen Größen 13,5cm und 22cm. - Die 39cm Ganza von Gope ist auch prima, kommt aber nicht an die Ganza 8,5 x 40cm Maracatu von Barravento heran. Bei so einer großen Ganza ist die Füllung von Gope für meinen Geschmack zu fein und der rustikale Klang der Samen von Barravento schöner.
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.
Since 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.
