Surdo Axé 20'' x 40 cm - inverted nappa heads and extra large resonance hole for stage mic instalation
20'' marcação surdo for Samba Reggae / Afro Samba with a short shell and voluminous bass with short sustain!
The short bodies have their origin in Bahia, where sambistas traditionally dance lots of choreographies and lift the surdos up above their heads for show effects. A shorter shell saves weight and is handier. Also a short body produces a shorter sustain which is exactly the sound you want to have when playing Bahia styles.
The surdo comes with a 20'' inverted korino head. Korino or nappa heads are multilayer heads made of a nappa and a nylon layer. The inverted version has turned the layers upsidedown: the nylon layer is on top while the nappa is on the inside. Like this don´t loose sound quality and keep the attack, the tone stays defined but still you get the typical warm and deep bass sound of a korino head.
Timbra surdos look classy and are popular for especially for stage gigs. The also have more tension rods and therefore of course weigh a little bit more. This fundo is polished and has chromed, well manufactured hardware.
A real eyecatcher!

klngt sehr dumpf; Korinofell ist umgekehrt, dieses Fell ist nicht so top.
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.
