Surdo Axé 18'' x 43 cm - short surdo for Samba Reggae and Bahia styles
Short and compact 18'' surdo for Samba Reggae fans!
In the last couple of years the short surdos have become more and more popular in Brazil and in Europe. You used to see them only in a few of Salvador´s blocos like e.g. Timbalada or Ilé Aiyê. Being shorter than other surdo types, they produce the typical dry Samba Reggae and Afro Samba sounds with short sustain and of course they also are lighter.
The Light series by Contemporanea is a slightly lighter version compared to their Pro series. The shell material is thinner, the stabilty of the rims is achieved by creasing the metall, additional reinforcements are reduced or left out in order to save weight. A simple instrument with good sound and no special features!
Typical Contemporanea Light: The shell is made of brushed aluminium, the hardware is varnished.
Standard ex fabric: nylon heads
Customer reviews for "Surdo Axé 18" x 43 cm - Light"(3)
Ich bin mit dem Produkt sehr zufrieden. Guter Klang und gute Verarbeitung.
alles bestens vielen dank .
Der erste Eindruck ist sehr gut, das Material wirkt solide und an der Verarbeitung ist auch nichts auszusetzen. Wie robust die Surdo ist, wird sich nach längerem Einsatz zeigen.
CONTEMPORÂNEA PRO serie instruments are very popular amongst sambistas from all over the world. Now the percussion company has created a second, fearly lower priced line:
The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium and are simple in their style. This way some working processes aren´t necessary and the drums can be offered at a more advantageous price. Sound and durability maintains in the well known CONTEMPORÂNEA quality.
The PRO line as well as the LIGHT line are made of thick aluminium sheet, which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo.
