The Meinl Traditional Aluminum Caixa is a classic Samba instrument. The Caixa is a snare-type drum played with sticks. It has synthetic heads for bright, penetrating tones, and cutting rim shots. The Caixa’s role is to be played as a fast and high counterpoint line to the deeper Surdos and middle range Repenique. The Meinl Traditional Aluminum Caixa has an extra deep shell for a full sound. The snare is made from a pair of guitar strings secured with a special tension device. The rims are secured with six countersunk tuning lugs. All edges are smoothly finished for player comfort. All hardware is chrome plated for enduring great looks. A tuning key is included. Meinl Caixas come equipped with heads that have our 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. Caixas are typically worn waist high. The Meinl Samba Belt is perfect for this style of play. Our Samba Sticks offer options for variable sounds. Our Regular Version Samba Stick is a single stick for a focused strike. Our Sevenfold stick has a more splashy attack. A great way to carry the Meinl 12” Traditional Caixa is in the MCA-12T Professional Caixa bag. This padded bag with extra-sturdy zippers will keep your Caixa looking great for all your Samba performances.
