Fibreglass coated 18" supernylon superior surdo head by Contemporânea
Durable, strong, thick surdo head with rich mids and strong bass tones; fibreglass coating filters out unwanted overtones. Supernylon heads are made of a foil 32% times thicker than standard heads and have a special fibreglass coating on the underside producing a specific sound characteristic: reduced overtones, amplified mids, powerful sound. Super nylon heads are also particularly durable. Super nylon heads are always meant to be superior heads (batter heads), as they vibrate less due to their thick foil and their coating and they are therefore not suitable as resonance heads.
Good to know:
Give your head some time to settle! You will notice that there is a lot of strange sounds going on when you put on a new head. At first, a new drum head might sound a bit squeaky, until it gets used to the tension and the rim, it will stretch and eventually settle nicely onto the rim and into the hardware. In short - give it some time! A new head needs a few rehearsals until it sounds really good. A super nylon head is suitable for you if you like rich, strong and overtone-poor sound and you are looking for an especially durable head.
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!

CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil
This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in Brazil. Intensive contact to the musicians has always been an important part of their business strategy. They not only sell instruments, but mainly live their music. Every Saturday morning, many musicians meet up in CONTEMPORÂNEA´S music shop in the historic center of São Paulo. In a special back room, musicians of every age play Choro. The pagodeiros meet up in front of the shop for playing their sessions. Many of São Paulo´s smaller and larger Samba schools play CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments.
CONTEMPORÂNEA in Europe
Also in Europe CONTEMPORÂNEA is a popular brand which you sometimes even find in drum- and percussion shops that don´t have so much to do with Samba.
CONTEMPORÂNEA has two lines: CONTEMPORÂNEA LIGHT and CONTEMPORÂNEA PRO.
The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium. Kept in a simple design and not being polished, the LIGHT line can be offered at a lower price and without suffering quality loss in terms of sound or durability. The robust PRO line is made of polished aluminium or wood.
Compared to other brands that also use aluminium for building instruments, CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments made from aluminium stand out by being built of thicker material which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo, but therefore also a higher weight.
