Samba surdo drums

The surdo is a large bass drum used primarily in Brazilian Samba music and Samba Reggae. Usually varying in size between 16" & 29" in diameter and generally 60cm in depth, the deepest pitched surdos are the largest drums in a samba band. Surdos can be constructed from wood, however are typically made from metal such as aluminium and traditionally would have used calf skin heads on either end but this has now been replaced with Mylar. The surdo can either be played with one end sitting on the ground but tilted back slightly to allow the bottom head or resonate freely, or in a samba procession the player will use a belt or harness to allow them to play the drum on the move. The surdo is typically played using a soft and fluffy headed beater. The player will also use their hand to mute the top head for more dynamic and texture.
