Izzo Light Instruments
Izzo Light range of Brazilian percussion instruments consists of a series of lightweight instruments at a much lower price while maintaining the quality of the brand. These characteristics make them perfect for percussion schools or to be used by children and adolescents. They also become an ideal instrument for drummers with back problems as they are much lighter than the standard line surdos.
These types of very light surdos are made with a lighter aluminum sheet to reduce their weight. This makes them slightly less robust than their regular Izzo series counterparts.
If you prefer to do without the harmonics of the head, you can choose to put a double layer head on it or glue a strip of foam to the inside of the surdo just below the beater head as many afro blocos from Salvador de Bahia do.
