    Good basic choir folder, I've bought hundreds in the past. Very little to compare at the price. Chamberlain's service couldn't be faulted with delivery within 5 days.

    PBuzzes are great music-toys. These are a sort of tunable vuvuzela: easy to play, tough and good fun. We have a trio playing PBuzzes now, they're perfect for outdoor (in the rain) gigs and it's very...

Description Reviews  
The surdo is the biggest, deepest drum and plays the heartbeat of samba music. This set of three practical Castle surdos includes one blue 12" drum, one green 14" drum, and one yellow 16" drum.

Unlike the other ranges from Izzo, these drums have a skin on one end only, meaning they can be stacked away inside one another to save space and ease transportation. This makes them particularly suitable for classrooms with limited space.

Of course, removing one of the drum heads causes the tone to become brighter and more resonant. To compensate for this, each Castle drum is fitted with black Napa rather than standard synthetic skins.

Rubber feet are also supplied to protect the drums (and the floor) when being played on the ground. Take a look at the links on the right hand side of this page for sticks and straps.

We are proud to be the sole importers for Izzo who have been manufacturing top quality instruments in Brazil for more than 60 years.
