The repique or repinique is a high pitched tenor drum, used to play the basic samba groove, solo phrases as well as calls and responses. She is also responsible for calling in the whole bateria (drum group). It normally has a skin on both ends, and its pitch sits between the surdo (bass drum) and the caixa (snare drum).


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.
