Zabumba with beautiful wood shell 20'' x 20 cm - seperate tuning systems on each side
The heartbeat and soul of each Forró ensemble! The zabumba gives the pulse and pushes the swing with its contra rhythms. Together with a triangle, accordion and lyrics, nobody can resist to dance to Forró! Gope has built a traditional modell with a modern design. The body is beautifully layer-glued, the laminated wood is painted black and has quite a luxury look. The dark finish goes beautifully with the brass connecting sleeves and the chromed lugs. You can tune each side of the zabumba through seperate hooks. The playing side has a nylon head, the bottom side has a thinner resonance head. Ready for your next Forró?
Customer reviews for "Zabumba 20'' x 20 cm - individual tuning"
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.
