Introducing the Izzo Surdo 16"
The surdo drum is a staple in Brazilian samba music, renowned for its deep and resonant sound and plays a fundamental role in the rhythmic foundation of samba music.
Crafted using lightweight aluminium, the surdo drum combines great portability with weather-resistant durability, making it an ideal choice for musicians on the go and a dependable, long lasting option for classroom use.
It is played in a variety of ways most often with one soft padded beater and an open hand to dampen the sound. Occasionally it is played with two beaters in either hand and sometimes it is played with a soft beater on the drumhead and a hard drumstick striking the side or shell of the drum.
