Original Rio style Samba beaters - perfect for hide heads - medium sized, allrounder!
Hard beaters with only very little padding get the richest sound out of hide heads. The heartbeat of your bateria comes from the bass corners - the surdos de marcação, whilst the rhythmic 'ornaments' and syncopations are played by the terceira. This beater has a medium size which you may use for any of those sizes. Sambistas with smaller hands might find this size more comfortable than the large Marcação mallets, respectively for some people the regular terceira beater size is too small. The Médio beater has a medium large, unpadded head and semi-long hard-wood handle.
surdo beater for the voices of surdo de primeira and surdo de segunda and also the terceira voice in Rio style Samba. The long hard-wood handle and hard head help produce rich bass tones on hide heads.
This type of beater should only be used on hide heads (animal skins). Heads made from nylon, korino (nappa), vintage or similar types of surdo heads will suffer dents or might even break.

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.
