14” aluminium caixa, a traditional Brazilian snare-type drum played with sticks, is a staple piece with any Samba band. It has synthetic heads for bright, penetrating tones, and cutting rim shots. Its role is to be played as a fast and high counterpoint line to the deeper Surdos and middle range Repenique. This caixa has a snare drum style snare, complete with a snare throw-off. The rims are secured with six countersunk tuning lugs. All edges are smoothly finished for player comfort. The hardware is chrome plated for enduring great looks. The caixa comes equipped with reaplaceable heads that have Meinl’s logo printed on the underside. This patented technique assures the logo ink will not rub off onto sticks and make smear marks on the head. A tuning key is included. Dimensions: 14” x 4” (355 x 102 mm).
