Repique de Mão 12''
A great enrichment for every Pagode round, highly appreciated and always very welcome - the repique de mão is the cherry on the cake of any Samba de mesa! It is a musical VIP, as it brings in its very own energy. If played virtuosic you will not believe your ears. Nor will you be able to stay seated - its rhythm pushes and produces an incredible swing, above all by its contra rhythms which are played with one hand on the outside of the shell. To play, you put the instrument sidewards on you lap, basically just like a rebolo or a tan tan. Or you can play standing up. With one hand you play the typical Partido Alto rhythms whilst the other hand gives contra with the complementary rhythms. The rhythmic contruct is percussive at a high grade and - typical Brazilian - most of the beats are placed somewhere offbeat. The swing will let you leap to your feet wanting to dance!
The 12'' repique de mão by Izzo is made of matt brushed aluminium, the functional comfort rim is chromed.
Customer reviews for "Repique de mao 12''"
High-quality instruments for Rio Samba and Samba Reggae, which are especially popular and proven in schools! For quite some years now, instrument builder IZZO remains among the top brands of Brazilian Samba percussios. It has been a while that IZZO instruments from São Paulo were rather simple percussion instruments which were very popular in Brazil due to their good price range.
Then they began to constantly increase their standard of Samba instruments until they reached a top-class level. By now they have become a serious manufacturer with a wide range of very well manufactured instruments which are known throughout the international market.
IZZO achieved a special coup when in 2010 they lanced their top brand TIMBRA. TIMBRA instruments were developed in close cooperation with renowned percussionists. The objective was to create convincing series of instruments with great sound, optically outstanding and adecuate for stage gigs. Especially the timbals, made of either wood or aluminium, set new standards with their 16 tuning hooks, extraordinary design and spectacular sound.
Today IZZO is completely in the league of the old-established traditional brands of Samba instruments.
