Gope Zabumba

18″ x 20cm wood shell

Napa head on top, plastic head on bottom

This is the most common and versatile size of zabumba.  Great for all styles of forró music.

The Zabumba is used along with the triangle to play rhythms from the North East of Brazil, including baião, forró, xote, xaxado, quadrilha, and more.

This drum is played with a padded mallet on the top head and a “bacalhão” – a thin stick made from nylon or bamboo – on the bottom head.

Mallets, balcalhao, straps, and padded case also available.
