Surdo beaters are an important utensil for good sound on your surdo. They are available in different types of wood or aluminium and with different level of padding. Depending on the type of drum head you use and which voice you play, you need harder, softer, smaller, bigger, longer or shorter mallets to get the best sound from your drum.
