Striped surdo Axé 22'' x 40 cm - inverted nappa heads
White-silver striped Bahia style surdo!
22'' marcação surdo for Samba Reggae / Afro Samba with a short shell and voluminous XL bass!
The short surdo style has its 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 shells produce a shorter sustain which is the authentic sound you want to have when playing Bahia styles.
The surdo comes with a 22'' inverted korino head. Korino or nappa heads are multilayer heads made of one nappa and one nylon layer. The inverted version uses the layers upsidedown: the nylon layer is on top while the nappa is on the inside. Like this you won't loose sound quality and keep all the attack, the tone stays defined but you still get the typical warm and deep bass sound of a korino head.
Timbra surdos look classy and are popular especially for stage gigs. The have more tension rods for finer tuning and therefore naturally weigh a little more. This surdo is polished and then lacquered with white stripes. It has chromed, well manufactured hardware.
A real eyecatcher!
Customer reviews for "Surdo Axé 22'' x 40 cm striped - inverted korino head"(1)
Compact, looks and sounds great
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.
