The surdo drum is an essential part of the traditional Brazilian music. They form the lower pitched section of the samba ensemble and provide the steady beat that underpins all the exciting syncopation and cross rhythms of the other instruments.
This drum from Percussion Plus is made from a wood shell with a silver finish and clear plastic heads. It has been designed to be lightweight so it can be part of a marching parade and is supplied with a harness.
It is supplied with two beaters with hard white felt heads to produce a loud and resonant sound. A perfect addition to any samba band.
Product pictured is PP783 18" diameter head.
