Repicaixa - 2 in 1 hybrid repinique with strings - 12" x 27 cm - IVSOM
The hybid repinique is a total eyecatcher, stylish and in typical IVSOM design with polished aluminium and yellow hardware. On one side, the repinique sounds like a totally normal repinique with some background caixa white noise. Turn the hybrid repinique around and play on the side of the strings - it will sound like an amplified caixa! The high shell enlargens the volume of the resonance body, so you get more sound volume, too and add a good portion of caixa crispiness to it! The solid aluminium shell as well as all technical details are in well-established IVSOM quality. The tension rods are screwed down flush with the fittings in the ring. Smoothed out rims for ideal skin fitting, tension hoops, threads etc. are neatly manufactured.
Amongst others, IVSOM provides the sambaschool Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel in Rio de Janeiro with his instruments. Being a mechanic and a sambista himself, he has ideal knowledge and abilities for building high quality Samba instruments.
Customer reviews for "Repicaixa 12'' x 27 cm with strings"(3)
Lovely drum as a rep and snare player its nice to finally have a drum that combines the best of both Fits in with the rest of the bateria im in perfectly without being over powering
Super sound, sehr knackiger snareeffekt. Nur die obenliegenden gewindestangen stören beim repiquespielen. Ist aber halt die original Bauweise. Sonst stabile Fertigung.
An excellent innovation that deserves some exploration
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.
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.
