A unique repenique designed to fit inside the nesting surdos
Handy and compact - 10" repinique by Timbra
If weight or less luggage is important to you this Timbra repinique is ideal and the sound is excellent too. Also kids and young sambistas will find the 10" a convenient size as it is only a little bit smaller than the standard 12" repinique but simply a lot handier. In terms of sound you don't have to lower your expectations, as with a 10" repinique you are just as able to play proper calls and solis, though of course the resonance body is a bit smaller. You can play it in Rio Samba, Samba Reggae / Afro Samba or in kids- and school bands, size and sound are perfect for any style! Weighing only 2,3 kg it is a pretty light instrument, the shell is made of polished aluminium, all hardware is chromed.
