Repinique 12'' x 30 cm - galvanised steel sheet, Ivsom
Steel sheet instruments are the classical old school type of Samba instruments. They are not particularly pretty but have an amazing sound. The material is simple - galvanised steel sheet with no extras, plain and compressed sound power for Rio sambistas and also Samba Reggae players. 6 rods are the standard for Rio Samba, if you play with the rods up, you 'll have enough space for your hand inbetween.
The typical sound of steel sheet instruments is somewhat rough, voluminous, powerful and makes crispy calls and tinkling rimshots a real pleasure. Steel sheet weighs more than aluminium or inox but makes up for it with incredible sound. Steel sheet drums won't win a beauty contest - although having nice Ivsom details - the surface will loose its gloss with the time and will turn matt. Steel sheet is also cheaper than aluminium, you'll get every penny worth with this repinique.

Best repique I've owned, looks and sounds so good! Now that I've experienced Ivsom I understand I'm playing the most authentic Rio bateria instruments available.
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.
