Light-weight malacacheta 12'' x 20 cm - aluminium, 6 strings with threading loops - no more annoying knot-tying!
A typical Rio style caixa in its classical format, but with a special feature: the 6 strings don't need to be tied together with knots what often requires quite some patience and light-fingeredness. Instead, each string has small wire loops on each end. Thread through the little cotter pin which is held by the string strainer. The strainer then pulls the strings down on the head being screwed tight by its thread the way you already know. Easy and quick! If you prefer tying knots with the standard strings, just take out the cotter pin and there you go.
The seam of the body is welded. Welded shells produce a higher and more audible part of shell sound than e.g. grooved shells as their shell vibrates better.
The caixa has black hoops, the body is made of light-weight, brushed aluminium and sounds nice and dry - Rio style!
Due to its low weight the caixa is also suitable for young sambistas.
Customer reviews for "Malacacheta 12'' x 20 cm - aluminium"(2)
Très bonne sonorité. Première sortie les gens ont aimés le design
Good quality, clear sound.
Simple to draw, but not so easy to draw the wire with the same tension.
Bolts are about 9,5mm and no key or instruction is given.
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.
