A snare drum with the high pitch and sensitivity to articulate syncopated Brazillian samba patterns.
The Latin Percussion Caixa is a snare drum that replicates the Carnaval parade sounds of indigenous Brazil. Brazilian percussion reflects the history, society, culture, and geography of a massive segment of the South American population. In one sense, Brazilian rhythms are complex and diverse; in another, they stroll along more unfettered than, say, Cuban music, which must adhere to the clave.
The LP Caixa is a snare drum that has roots in the Portuguese military. Played with sticks, the LP Caixa embodies the necessary high pitch and snare sensitivity to articulate syncopated patterns interwoven with buzz rolls. Six tuning screws - engineered for comfort - maintain tension, while snare action is controlled by a standard snare strainer. The LP Caixa features a well-built shell, sized 7" x 12". Bright and lightweight, it incorporates a radius-angle top rim to eliminate hand trauma and provide access to the batter head when marching.
The LP Rio Brazilian line includes essential percussion to generate a range of samba patterns at Carnaval, and relaxed and grinding grooves for the funky Partido Alto. The LP Rio Brazilian Percussion Line adheres to the highest LP standards--authenticity, broad tonality and good projection. And innovation, as always, is the guiding spirit.

Comments about LP Aluminum Caixa Snare Drum:
The hardware and finish on the drum, in my opinion, is superior to the authentic Brazilian offerings. LP did a great job mimicking the RMV tuning system. The snares however simply does not crack like a guitar-strung caixa. It's a more subtle sounding snare.. but a easy enough fix. The deeper size is perfect for a parading samba group. You won't find a more authentic caixa/malacacheta save going to Rio.
