Short, white surdo Axé 18'' x 40 cm - with nylon heads and large resonance hole for stage miking
Handsome instrument with white aluminium shell!
A short 18'' dobra surdo for Samba Reggae and Afro Samba styles - the typical Bahia size for fat bass with short sustain! The short drum shells have their origin in Bahia, where sambistas traditionally dance choreographies and lift the surdos up above their heads for show effects. The short drum body produces a shorter sustain which is exactly the sound you want to have when playing Bahia styles.
Timbra surdos look classy and are popular especially for stage gigs. The also have more tension rods and therefore naturally weigh a little more. This 18'' dobra has a white paint coating, the hardware is chromed and well manufactured.
Special feature: the shell has a large resonance hole for stage miking.
A real eyecatcher!
Customer reviews for "Surdo Axé 18'' x 40 cm white - nylon heads"(1)
In 2010, IZZO managed to pull off a remarkable milestone by lancing their high-end show brand TIMBRA TOP PERCUSSION.
All TIMBRA Samba instruments have been 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.
TIMBRA builds all kinds of Samba instruments from wood and aluminium surdos, cuicas, rebolos to tantans and timbals. A special eye-catcher was one of the brand's first lines - the Carlinhos Brown Signature Series with timbals and bacurinhas with elaborate colour prints and designs on vinyls. High-quality workmanship, authentic sounds and flashy designs are still the main trademarks of TIMBRA.
