Tamborim 6'' - aluminium frisado - Gope
|height of frame:||44 mm|
Totally Rio style! A thick shell produces a nice and full sound with hardly any overtones - that also applies for tamborins! To keep the tamborim nice and light so that your arms won't fall off after a short time, aluminium grooves have been milled out. The tam immediately fits into your hand, having only 6 hooks the frame leaves enough space for your hand to find the right playing position. The frame has an average height of 4,4 cm and is completely equipped with chromed hardware. The shell has a straight finish on the bottom side and a nice and flat top so the head sits nice and flat.
Brand description "Gope"
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.
