Surdo Head 18'' hydraulic - Gope

item number: A378218
head by instrument: Surdo
size: 18"
Type: nylon double-ply, hydraulic
weight (net): 0,43 kg

18“ hydraulic head - double ply oil head - batter head

Due to their thickness and sound characteristics, heads with two plies naturally only function as batter heads. This head type is especially popular amongst drummers and sambistas who like fat sounds with a slow attack and a fast decay. The short, almost non-existant sustain is the result of the double layer of heads which don't vibrate easily and therefore provide a high amount of dampening behaviour. Between the two plies there is a special type of oil which influences the sound characteristics of the head even stronger and reduce the sustain to an absolute minimum. Thicker, double ply heads are also extremely durable.

This head will be interesting for you if you like the following sound characteristics:
- warm, deep, punchy and short sounds
- sustain: very little to none
- overtones reduced to a minimum
- quick decay (the dropout of the tone from its maximum to 0)
- with surdo heads: nice and warm but not too resounding bass tones, short, fat and warm
- slow attack, doesn't sound too sharp



Note about spare parts:

We recommend that you always purchase spare parts of the same brand as your instrument to ensure fit and function. We cannot assume any warranty for different-brand combinations. If you are looking for a spare part that you cannot find on our site, please contact us!

Brand description "Gope"

gope-olodum

GOPE is a family-run business from the area around São Paulo. Today the company is being run in its third generation by the grand daughter of the firm´s founder.


The brand GOPE has been producing drums and smallpercussion instruments for over 50 years now. When the company was founded, there was already a small workshop in which drumsets were manufactured.

In 1962, the production of the typical Samba instruments began, iniciated by Humberto Rodella, the son of the founder. The company kept growing and after several relocations in São Paulo, GOPE finally found the right place for building a large production hall in Embu Guaçu, a suburb of São Paulo.

gope-expoSince then GOPE produces in Embu Guaçu everything from the Agogô to the Zabumba, a wide range of percussion instruments, and only recently also various wind instruments.

GOPE has always kept in close touch with the musicians. The ideas and proposals for modifications that they received from many of those contacts, have always had much influence in the development of new instruments and improvement of production.
