Chocalho / Rocar with aluminium frame - 30 pairs of galvanised steel sheet (60 individual platelets)
Original Rio sound! Jingles made of galvanised steel sheet are perfect if the authentic Brazilian sound is important to you. Chocalhos are an relevant musical compontent which cannot miss in any Rio style Samba bateria. Their frequency contribute to a balanced soundscape and add to the stability of the rhythm group with their swing and function as a timekeeper. Their tinkling sound (or also 'white sound') is the musical counterpart to the bass of the surdos and the mids of the repiniques. The aluminium frame has two lateral handles which some sambistas like to wrap with some fabric for more comfort when playing especially during longer sessions. Steelsheet jingles are known for their pure, slightly 'dirty' sound which warms any sambista's heart. Super sound but dirty fingers, as the steel sheet does rub off when playing.

Alles Super. Gerne wieder.
Schöner Schellenklang. Brasilianisches rustikales Finish.
GOPE is a family-run business from the area around São Paulo. Today the company is being run in its third generation by the grand daughter of the firm´s founder.
The brand GOPE has been producing drums and smallpercussion instruments for over 50 years now. When the company was founded, there was already a small workshop in which drumsets were manufactured.
In 1962, the production of the typical Samba instruments began, iniciated by Humberto Rodella, the son of the founder. The company kept growing and after several relocations in São Paulo, GOPE finally found the right place for building a large production hall in Embu Guaçu, a suburb of São Paulo.
Since then GOPE produces in Embu Guaçu everything from the Agogô to the Zabumba, a wide range of percussion instruments, and only recently also various wind instruments.
GOPE has always kept in close touch with the musicians. The ideas and proposals for modifications that they received from many of those contacts, have always had much influence in the development of new instruments and improvement of production.
