Signature wood repinique Gabriel Policarpo 12"x30 cm with flattened rim - Contemporanea PRO

Special design with lowered rim section (ideal for stick-hand technique) and black superior head by Contemporanea - THE model for repinique freaks - the wood Signature piece has some absolutely brilliant design details that will blow your mind. Yes, we know, it's beautiful.

Something different: This repinique is made of wood - a rather untypical material for this instruments section. Wood is generally liked for its warm sound characteristics. In order for the shell to withstand the tension, it has extra reinforcement rings in the inside and weighs 2.85 kg, which is about 200 grams more than a standard aluminium model. Beautiful, matt lacquered finish with signature print completes the design.

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. High-end Contemporanea PRO features ensure 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.

Special feature:
The rim is lowered on one side between two rods, so your playing hand is on the same level as the playing head. No more annoying rim, less injury potential and finally a cleaner sound, because now you can concentrate on your technique, your sound and your solos without any obstacles.

Special design:
Black, thick nylon superior head, Gabriel Policarpo signature print on the shell.

Customer reviews for "Repinique 12"x 30cm signature Gabriel Policarpo - wood"

9 Jan 2023
Good but could be better.

Sounds good, but the drum would sound amazing with finished bearing edges.
This would also improve the lifespan of the heads, and make it easier to tune well.

Shell clicks sound absolutely stunning, but with its default untreated bearing edges the sound is too dry and muted.
After having the edges reworked, the sound is more open and it cuts a bit better whist retaining the warmth of wood, I will actually show this to Gabriel Policarpo in February when I go to Rio for Carnival.

Suena como un repinique Mor

No es el mismo sonido como el que se escucha en los vídeos de Youtube donde Policarpo aparece tocando este repique. Ya lo soque bastante y ni aun así suena agudo. el sonido es como el de un repique mor.

CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in... more




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.


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.



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.
