Compact repique de mão 10" - Contemporanea Pro
The most virtuous add-on in your Pagode session: the repique de mão is the cherry on the cake of every Pagode session. It is not particularly a musical 'must' but always a great enrichment. It brings those special vibes to a Samba de mesa, if played with virtuosity, this instrument is amazing and impressive! It pushes the beat and creates an incredible swing, simply by giving dominant contra rhythms played on the outside of its shell. The instrument is held sidewards on your lap, actually like a tan tan or a rebolo, only that it is shorter and has a synthetic head. With one hand you play the typical Partido Alto rhythms, with the other hand you give contra with the complementary rhythms. The musical construction is highly percussive and - typical Brazilian - most of the syncopated rhythms are offbeat. The swing that is created like this won't let you rest for long - you will want to jump up from your seat immediately and dance!
The repique de mão by Contemporanea Pro is made of polished thick-walled aluminium which the brand typically uses and is equipped with a comfort rim. All hardware is chromed.
Customer reviews for "Repique de Mao 10" Pro"
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.
