Introducing the Percussion Plus samba pack for 10 players

Featuring a diverse range of percussive instruments, the Percussion Plus samba pack provides all the essential elements required to craft a lively samba ensemble in your classroom. Now featuring drums made in Brazil by the world's premier manufacturer of samba instruments, as well as other education-focused percussion like Wak-a-Tubes, agogo bells and shakers, this samba pack is perfect for education.

Great for musical engagement, samba provides students with an immersive musical experience focused on creating rhythmic patterns and developing key skills such as coordination, timing and listening. The drums are genuine, Brazilian made instruments are made from aluminium. Sturdy and lightweight they are easy to play on the move or even whilst dancing! Great value, they are an excellent start to building any samba set.

Teaching samba is also a great way of giving students the opportunity to explore and appreciate the diverse cultural elements embedded in the genre. These drums are convenient too: The 10" repinique, and 14" and 18" surdos have clear drum skins only on the top of the drums, allowing them to nest for easy storage and transport.

What's included

1x 10" (25cm) Repinique

The repinique is a medium sized cylindrical drum that adds a lively and dynamic voice to the samba ensemble. The instrument is often played with one hard drumstick and an open hand, and is worn using a shoulder strap, usually around waist high and slightly tiled to the player’s right side. Therefore, the repinique is supplied with one hard beater and a nylon strap.

1x 14" and 18” Surdo drums

The surdo is a large cylindrical drum with a deep shell and is played in a variety of ways - one popular way is with a soft padded beater and an open hand to dampen the sound. It can also be played with two beaters in either hand and sometimes with a soft beater on the drumhead and a hard drumstick striking the side or shell of the drum. The surdo drum is fundamental within samba music, often forming the core heartbeat and rhythm of the samba ensemble, with its loud, deep tone. Each surdo is supplied with one soft beater and a nylon strap.

1x Snare drum with vest harness

The snare drum, equipped with a comfortable vest harness, produces a vibrant, loud sound, while also offering great mobility while playing. Easy to play, simply strike the head and enjoy how the crisp, sharp sound significantly enhances the samba ensemble.

2x Izzo 6” ABS tamborim in white

The tamborim is a small, single-headed drum held in one hand, adding intricate, lively rhythms to the samba ensemble. It is played by holding the tamborim in one hand while using a samba stick to strike the drumhead with their dominant hand, allowing for precise and vibrant percussive patterns to be created.

2x Double agogo bells

Agogo bells are pairs of differently pitched metal funnel shaped bells, one high and one low, that are played with a wooden stick to create melodic accents and a distinct, lively timbre.

2x Metal shaker

The Percussion Plus metal ganza shaker is simple yet effective, producing a wonderfully crisp sound when shaken, making it lots of fun to play. Made of durable metal, the metal shaker is able to withstand long classroom use.

1x Samba whistle with cord

The Percussion Plus samba whistle with cord makes a loud, high pitched sound that is great for giving cues to other musicians. This tri-tone whistle is made from solid plastic and features a neck lanyard to help keep it secure.

1x Wak-a-Tubes Diatonic set of 8

Brightly coloured, these plastic Wak-a-Tube instruments are made from different lengths of plastic tubing. They’re fun and easy to play and are great for teaching children essential team working skills. With great versatility, you can whack them against the surface, hit them against each other, or lay them out on a flat surface and strike them with beaters.
