Contemporânea Nesting Surdo Set
Set of 3. - 12inch, 14inch and 16inch. Single ended, napa head, free standing, includes feet and hard case.
Developed by Dave Ledsam in conjunction with various Brazilian makers for use in smaller workshop areas. Single-ended Surdos which nest into each other, ideal for transport and light enough for smaller and younger players to use. The idea came from the use of Tam Tam and Rebolo with a surdo beater. These gave a deep tone by using a NAPA head on a single-skinned instrument. They make ideal drums for sports teams. Simeon Smith of the maSamba Samba school has developed a colour-based teaching method using these drums.
