Contemporanea are one of the bigger names in samba percussion industry, producing top quality instruments developed in conjunction with Brazilian drum makers, to provide you with instruments that sound like the beating heart of Brazil.
These particular drums have proven to be very popular in recent years due to the high standards of production and the ease of storage. The nesting surdos do just that, they neatly nest inside one another, making them ideal to transport.
The drums themselves are made from lightweight aluminium making them light enough for younger kids to play as well as adults. Each surdo is fitted with a single black napa head. This is ideal for two reasons, firstly for storage as it save you having to take the head off every time you want to nest the drums together, and secondly because with such a thick head comes deep, pulsating tones and rhythms.
A nice touch is that these drums are supplied with rubber feet that quickly and easily attach to the bottom rim of each drum so that you can play them on the floor or standing up with a strap. This makes them easy to play for little ones or adults adding to their versatility.
Ideal for use in schools, drum circles, samba bands or even sporting events, these drums make for a very welcome addition to anyone wishing to explore the world of samba.
Available in 12", 14", 16" and 18" sized drums - please navigate to our 'also see' section for details.
