Surdo light Fundo 20"x40cm aluminium HW chromed

Our lightest Samba Reggae surdos from Gope!
Ultra-short shell, crispy, authentic Bahia sound for fat bass sound on street parades or stage gigs. Gope welds its seams instead of folding or riveting them, so the sound can swing even better and unfold more shell-based sound. Lightweight components make this surdo an absolute favourite - minimal weight with high stability and big time bass. The compact Surdo is especially suitable for surdo players who have overhead choreographies, who lift up the surdo with one hand and do a lot of show dancing. But also those who don't want to carry heavy - young samba players or candidates with back problems - will love this model. Once hooked, you'll never want to play a different surdo.
The Light line doesn't have quite as much volume as models with thick and heavy shells, but here the emphasis is clearly on the 'extra light'. With thick heads you can add a lot of quality to the Light line surdos. The construction principle is simple: save weight, big sound and a stable, versatile street and stage instrument.
This model has a chromed rim.

Our tip for big bass:
Replace the ex-factory drumhead with a thicker one, e.g. a GP3, a hydraulic head, a double-ply or an inverted korino head. Thicker skins vibrate less, thicken the attack and bring more sound mass into mix.
For the high voices the thin ex-factory head might be just the right head. It can be tuned to exactly the right level with partial masking, damper gel pads or foam rings.

"Gope"

GOPE is a family-run business from the area around São Paulo. Today the company is being run in its third generation by the grand daughter of the firm´s founder.


The brand GOPE has been producing drums and smallpercussion instruments for over 50 years now. When the company was founded, there was already a small workshop in which drumsets were manufactured.

In 1962, the production of the typical Samba instruments began, iniciated by Humberto Rodella, the son of the founder. The company kept growing and after several relocations in São Paulo, GOPE finally found the right place for building a large production hall in Embu Guaçu, a suburb of São Paulo.

gope-expoSince then GOPE produces in Embu Guaçu everything from the Agogô to the Zabumba, a wide range of percussion instruments, and only recently also various wind instruments.

GOPE has always kept in close touch with the musicians. The ideas and proposals for modifications that they received from many of those contacts, have always had much influence in the development of new instruments and improvement of production.
