The 'cuica' is a Brazilian friction drum. An instrument which is rather unique in that it has a large pitch range controlled by the player via a large stick fixed to the centre of the drum head. The stick is rosined and rubbed with a damp cloth - this produces the sound - whilst the players other hand applies pressure to the drum head in order to change the pitch It is a comparatively small drum, especially when compared to the more common Surdo found in samba groups but is lightweight and easy to carry.

Made with a sturdy stainless steel shell and chrome plated hardware, this cuica is built to last, perfect for heavy use in samba.
