Stringed repinique vazada with no shell - 2 in 1 Hybrid Repinique with Caixa strings - 12" x 27 cm - IVSOM

Direct and loud sound - the repicaixa is an absolute eye-catcher, stylish and in signature IVSOM look with vazada shell and yellow hardware.
If you play on the side without strings, it sounds like a normal repinique with a casual caixa sound, but the steel frame shell makes it much louder and more direct. Flip the hybrid repinique over to make it sound like an amplified caixa. The longer shell increases the volume of the resonance body, so you have a larger sound volume and a lot more punch in the sound! Well-made components and materials, and the usual technical details of IVSOM instruments: the rods are screwed flush into the brackets of the rim. The inner head rim, the tension rims, smooth-running threads, etc. are easy to handle.

IVSOM is, among others, a supplier to the Samba school Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel in Rio de Janeiro. As a mechanic and active sambista, he has the ideal skills and knowledge to build great Samba instruments.

IVSOM in Brazil

IVSOM is a small producer of Samba instruments from Rio de Janeiro. The brand is a wordplay: Its owner´s name is Ivson, the Braziliain word for tune is 'som'. Before becoming self-employed, Ivson absolved a profound formation in the metalworking craft sector. Ivson has been an active sambista for many years. He plays caixa for Mocidade, his wife and business partner Luciana plays the chocalho. Therefore he is very close to his clients and knows exactly, what is in demand. Ivson actively participates in the production of his instruments and makes excellent-quality instruments in a very well organized workshop. Some of Rio´s major Samba schools play his instruments. Quite frecuently Ivson surprises us with new features and innovations. Due to his close contact to the Samba scene, he is often the first to convert buzzing ideas and or incitations into useful inspiration for making new instruments. The IVSOM 'vasado' caixas and repiniques created the trend of instruments without bodies.

IVSOM in Europe
IVSOM instruments have gained high recognition amongst Hardcore Rio Sambistas in Europe within the last couple of years. Especially their good workmanship and the excellent sound of the drums have attracted the percussionist´s attenention over here. The number of IVSOM fans is growing larger each year.

Percussion instrumens
IVSOM drums have a couple of untypical characteristics. For example, the tension rods are tightly screwed to the tension hoop. This link is very stable and absolutely free of rattling noises, but a bit more time-consuming in its montage. The surdos have a neat detail concerning the rims of the body where the head rests. The body´s wall is rimmed around a 10 mm flat bar. With this the corpus is a lot more stable than other bodies where wire is used for reinforcement. Like this the drums obtain a smooth and flat rim for ideal head fitting. IVSOM´s reference product is the rocar with 20 jingles.
