Caixa - standard 12 inch snare drum for samba percussion
The caixa de guera is a Brazilian samba snare drum, sometimes called a Malachetta. It is much lighter and dryer toned drum than a standard snare drum and has a straight wire snare on the top (playing) surface.

The Artcelsior caixa drum has clean, dry, cutting tones, and its light weight and superior tone makes this make and model of caixa the preferred choice of most Rio de Janeiro samba schools.

The caixa has a determining influence on the rhythmic identity of a samba band bateria, supporting the rhythm of the surdo with its fast, complex, repetitive rhythms.

The caixa is a deep-bodied snare drum. We also sell the shallow-bodied snare drums known as tarols.
