Repique Mor 16" x 50 cm
With its 16 inches, the repique mor has a much larger diameter than regular sized repiniques, its tone is correspondingly lower which makes it stand out from the other frequencies in a bateria. It is played like a normal repinique, whereby there are special patterns that are assigned to it. Its tone is low and not as ringing and penetrant as the smaller repinique sizes. Well played, it brings a rich, fat sound base into a Rio style bateria, its sound is quite a unique frequency, which is especially effective with calls and solos.
Stylish and in typical Ivsom look with yellow galvanised hardware. Beautiful instrument with powerful sound. Well manufactured aluminium shell and with the typical technical details of Ivsom instruments: the tension rods are screwed flush in the brackets of the rim. Smoothed out rims for ideal skin fitting, tension hoops, threads etc. are neatly manufactured.
Amongst others, Ivsom provides the sambaschool Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel in Rio de Janeiro with his instruments. Being a mechanic and a sambista himself, he has ideal knowledge and abilities for building high quality Samba instruments.

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.
