TIMBALS IN A NEW PLAY OF COLOURS AND A DEDICATION TO SALVADOR'S WOMEN'S BLOCO
Red is the colour of the Banda Feminina Didá, a female-only bloco afro for women in Salvador, founded in 1993 by Mestre Neguinho do Samba (1945-2009). The band is the center of a strong social network which has been facilitating education for women and children for many years. Besides Samba Reggae, the organisation also teaches dance, singing, artisanal work and various other skills. Gope has dedicated this line to Didá and we are happy to be able to have it in our range for you.
#SELFIE is Gope's second new line, timbals painted with shiny metallic effect colour on the shell and the hardware. Top looks and sound that win over every timbaleiros heart.
COLOUR BOOST AND TOP SOUND
All timbals these new Gope lines have 16 tension hooks can be pitched up really high! The hooks spread the pression equally on the shell of the drum, like this your shell will not suffer any damage, even with the highest tuning. Nice, deep bass sound and crispy slaps are a nice to have with aluminium instruments, the whole sound has the typical sharp note. Aluminium instruments are pretty easy to maintain, weather doesn't harm them much and they are robust. The seam of the body is welded. Welded shells produce a higher and more audible part of shell sound due to more constant vibration, Gope welds all its instruments. The hardware and the comfort rim match the primary colour of the shell. Keep in mind - more hardware means more weight!
