Signature aluminium repinique Gabriel Policarpo 12"x30 cm - Contemporanea PRO
Special design with lowered rim section and black superior head by Contemporanea - THE model for repinique freaks - the Signature line has some absolutely brilliant design details that will blow your mind. Yes, we know, it's beautiful.
The Lamborghini Miura among the repinique models you could say. Classic dimensions meet high-quality materials and best workmanship. Functionalities are embedded in the design and thus enable the highest level of playing comfort with exceptional sound qualities. Thick-walled aluminium is a typical Contemporanea PRO feature and ensures voluminous and saturated sound characteristics. 6 tension rods allow for authentic Rio-style tuning and leave enough space for your hand when using the hand-stick technique. Contemporanea PRO generally likes to sound more voluminous than thin-walled instruments.
The rim is lowered on one side between two rods, so your playing hand is on the same level as the skin. No more annoying rim, less injury potential and finally a cleaner sound, because now you can concentrate on your playing technique, your sound and your solos without any obstacles.
Black, thick nylon superior head, Gabriel Policarpo signature print on the shell.

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.
