Surdo Head 18" nylon P3 - Izzo
|weight (net):||0,35 kg|
P3 heads are thicker (P2='grossa'; P3='supergrossa') than P2 heads, which is why they sound more saturated, they have less overtones and transmit an almost matt tone because they vibrate less than a thin head. The thickness of a head has only little influence in how long it may last. A thicker head might last a few gigs longer, but the difference is probably not to be mentioned.
P3 heads are ideally used as batter heads. You can combine a P3 batter head perfectly with a P2 resonance head.
The life career of a head begins with the moment you put it on your drum for the first time. Each time you tune it, the head will fit itself more comfortably onto the rim of shell being the base for the head. Also in terms of sound, time has an effect on every head. New heads often sound a bit whiny when freshly fitted onto the drum. But after a short break-in time and regular playing, the sound will quickly improve. A new head also will lift the rim higher. Each time you tune your drum, the head will sit itself lower down on the base and the rim can settle.
New head - high rim, whiny sound.
After a break-in time - low rim, nice sound.
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!
Customer reviews for "Head 18" nylon P3"(1)
good seller, rapid delivery, really happy
High-quality instruments for Rio Samba and Samba Reggae, which are especially popular and proven in schools! For quite some years now, instrument builder IZZO remains among the top brands of Brazilian Samba percussios. It has been a while that IZZO instruments from São Paulo were rather simple percussion instruments which were very popular in Brazil due to their good price range.
Then they began to constantly increase their standard of Samba instruments until they reached a top-class level. By now they have become a serious manufacturer with a wide range of very well manufactured instruments which are known throughout the international market.
IZZO achieved a special coup when in 2010 they lanced their top brand TIMBRA. TIMBRA instruments were developed in close cooperation with renowned percussionists. The objective was to create convincing series of instruments with great sound, optically outstanding and adecuate for stage gigs. Especially the timbals, made of either wood or aluminium, set new standards with their 16 tuning hooks, extraordinary design and spectacular sound.
Today IZZO is completely in the league of the old-established traditional brands of Samba instruments.
