Surdo instrument . The largest instruments of Brazilian percussion. We have a wide range of surdos Timbra , Izzo , Contemporanea, Meinl , etc. Choose the size you need. The short surdos measure approximately 40 or 45 cm long and the long ones approximately 50 or 55 cm.
Larger surdos are typically used for lower tunings and smaller surdos for higher tunings. If you are looking for a marking or fundo surdo, as a general rule you can choose between 20" and 24", the largest sizes being the bass markings (The 20" surdo is often used as a third surdo and on other occasions as a marking). when the rest of the surdos are smaller) The third, corte or dobra surdos are usually smaller (usually 16", 18" or 20", although 12" and 14" are also seen).
If you have back problems or you simply don't want the surdo to weigh a lot, you can opt for the Izzo or Contemporânea light ranges that weigh much less than their regular or high series counterparts. Another option is to order a Tito Puig handmade surdo which is also quite light and maintains a great quality.
