The Caixa is a Brazilian snare drum and an essential component of any samba band or group. Although it can be played on a stand, rather as it would be when part of a traditional drum kit, you tend to find the player stood up with the drum on a harness. Brazilian samba is a very energetic style, players are on their feet and always on the move and the Caixa provides the driving force behind the music. There are specific rudiments associated with samba and consequently the snare drum is one of the more important instruments, providing a steady rhythm whilst accenting off beats and providing breaks in the music.
This particular model, the IZ5511, is a large drum with a smart and resilient aluminium body. It has a 14'' white nylon drum head and a total depth of 15cm. The wire spiral snares, located on the underside of the drum, are tun-able which allows you to vary the sound enormously. The drum is finished off with chrome plated hardware.
It is worth pointing out that this drum is supplied as instrument only and a harness, should it be required will need to be purchased separately.
