Berimbau Gunga

All of our Berimbaus are hand made in Salvador Bahia, and ship locally from Austin, TX. The Berimbau Gunga generally has the thinest verga (berimbau stick), the largest cabaça (gourd), and produces the deepest tone of the bateria.

Before we ship an order, your berimbau will be strung, tuned, and tested to insure that you receive the best paired cabaça and verga possible 🙂

The Berimbau Gunga comes complete with :
– 1 Verga (approximately 66 in. / 168 cm. tall)
– 1 Cabaça Gunga (approximately 22.5 in / 57 cm. in circumference)
– Arame (wire)
– 1 Caxixi
– 1 Baqueta de tucum

– 1 Smooth stone for playing

Description

All berimbau orders will ship in 2 separate containers (1 for the berimbau and baqueta, 1 for the cabaça, caxixi and stone) Tracking information will be emailed to you when items have shipped.

All of our Berimbaus are hand made in Salvador Bahia, and ship locally from Austin, TX. Each Berimbau verga (stick) has been hand sanded and lightly varnished in order to preserve the quality and integrity of the instrument.

The top of the verga has been capped with a thick, circular piece of leather to secure the arame when stringing the berimbau. The Cabaça (gourd) has also been hand sanded, lightly varnished, and shaped in order to produce the best quality of sound possible for each gunga, medio, and viola.

Please note that all of our berimbaus are hand made in Salvador, Bahia Brazil and may have varying degrees of imperfections which make each instrument unique.

Please visit our Berimbau Lessons page to learn how to play each toque.
