20" Alfaia - pure, simple design, hide heads on aluminium rings for easy head exchange
 
Strong, laminated tension hoops hold the hide heads on the body of the alfaia which is also made of laminated wood. The shells are unpainted but colourless lacquered, the simple design leaves all the attention to the handcraft work and the wood-optic. The alfaias are very light! Good quality, stable nylon strings are used for the tuning system. Another pro for this series is the hide heads on aluminium rims.

Brand description "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.
