Info Full description
The repinique or repique is a large and extremely loud high pitched drum, used to play lead rhythms and to signify changes in samba music. It normally has a skin on both ends, and its pitch sits between the deep surdos and the various smaller high-pitched drums.

This model has a medium 12" head on each end of the 30cm body, held in place by gleaming chrome counter hoops and 8 adjustable tension rods.

A combination of the deep aluminium shell and durable white Nylon skins - the definitive samba drum construction materials - ensures optimum resonance which creates that recognisable carnival tone. Each drum comes fully assembled and includes a tuning key for tightening the skins.

We are proud to be the sole importers for Izzo who have been manufacturing top quality instruments in Brazil for more than 60 years. Their famous Standard Senior series are the first choice for serious samba percussionists around the world.
