Description Reviews  
The surdo is the biggest, deepest drum and plays the heartbeat of samba music. This 18" red Castle surdo is the largest in the nesting range and will fit snugly around the IZ121416 set of three smaller drums.

Unlike the other ranges from Izzo, Castle drums have a skin on one end only allowing them to 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.
