20 " wood surdo with nylon heads
Gope has transfered its light-weight concept of aluminium surdos to light, warm sounding wood surdo. 50 cm surdos can be basically used for any style. Wood surdos are especially nice for stage gigs, Pagodes, Samba de mesa and small ensembles as their warm, soft sound goes especially well with harmonie instruments. But also in Rio's Samba schools you may notice an increasing number of 50 cm surdos.
This series is well made, the shells are made of light-colored plywood, the hardware contains a black hoop and 10 galvanised lugs.
The producer Gope from near São Paulo is known for their long tradition of building instruments, extremely light hardware and a large range of percussion instruments.

Surdo agréable et sonore, avec une belle finition
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.
Since 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.
