Malacacheta 12'' x 20 cm
This shiny polished caixa de guerra has an especially thick-walled and rustical aluminium body. With this feature it sounds full and warm and a bit darker than instruments with very thin shells material. The strings are set in 3 double rows. We especially like the fact that you can easily play this malacacheta in down position. Due to its higher body the caixa lies comfortably on your thigh without tilting.
Fat sound, and the 20 cm shell provides a massive volume!

Sehr universell einsetzbar, durchsetzungsfähig im Sound. Mercedes unter den Caixas, leider entsprechend teuer.
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil
This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in Brazil. Intensive contact to the musicians has always been an important part of their business strategy. They not only sell instruments, but mainly live their music. Every Saturday morning, many musicians meet up in CONTEMPORÂNEA´S music shop in the historic center of São Paulo. In a special back room, musicians of every age play Choro. The pagodeiros meet up in front of the shop for playing their sessions. Many of São Paulo´s smaller and larger Samba schools play CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments.
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Europe
Also in Europe CONTEMPORÂNEA is a popular brand which you sometimes even find in drum- and percussion shops that don´t have so much to do with Samba.
CONTEMPORÂNEA has two lines: CONTEMPORÂNEA LIGHT and CONTEMPORÂNEA PRO.
The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium. Kept in a simple design and not being polished, the LIGHT line can be offered at a lower price and without suffering quality loss in terms of sound or durability. The robust PRO line is made of polished aluminium or wood.
Compared to other brands that also use aluminium for building instruments, CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments made from aluminium stand out by being built of thicker material which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo, but therefore also a higher weight.
