Surdo 24'' x 60 cm - goatskin heads

Massive bass for your bateria!
Artcelsior is an original sugar loaf tradition brand from Rio - an instrument manufacturer with traditional background and a long history. The instruments are literally crafted, their rustical look and the way they are built without any industrial finish has kept its fans and for many years now it has managed to preserve its reputation. Artelsior surdos use the traditional put-through-system with its tension rods. The hoops are galvanised, the shell is made of polished aluminium. This is the surdo which is played in Rio´s Samba schools! The 60 cm shell produces a deep and voluminous sustain. Artcelsior uses beautiful goatskin heads on wooden hoops. The surdo comes with goadskin heads on both sides. Big bass for the corners!

Important information for mounting goat skin heads:
Natural skins are mounted on wood rims after previously being moistened. When the dry, the skins tighten up which often causes the wood rim to twist. So if you put on a new goatskin head, it will probably be neccessary to slightly wetten the head with a sponge or a cloth (don´t drown it, just make it damp a little bit!). Then the head will stretch and you can mount it without any problems. Put the head on your surdo without putting tension on it. Leave it to dry at room temperature overnight, don´t expose it to sun or other foreign influences. It will fit itself nicely on your surdo and be ready for being tuned and played!
Like this you will enjoy your goat skin for a long time!

Please note:
24'' Surdos can only be sent unmounted due to the DHL girth measurement which may not be exceeded!
