The Surdo is a large bass drum used in many kinds of Brazilian music, most notably in Axé/Samba-reggae and samba and its variants, and in Rio-style Carnival samba music, where it plays the lower parts from a percussion section (or ‘bateria’) often with several other surdos. A single surdo often anchors smaller samba and pagode bands but drummers with a worldly ear are using surdo drums in new and creative ways. The PEARL Surdos are used also like a Mexican Tambora or like a marching bass drum.

The Surdos by PEARL are the bass-voice and foundation of their Brazilian Percussion Line. The lightweight wood shells allows for hours of comfortable play when worn over the shoulder with the provided strap. They are available in 18”x22”, 20"x18", and 22”x22” sizes (diameter x depth) and include two-ply tunable heads with an outer ply of synthetic leather for accentuated low–end frequencies. The durable yellow plastic covering with green and blue accents highlight the colors of Brazil and features the world-famous PEARL logo!

Here, we are featuring the large 22”x22” model but the accompanying picture also shows the 18”x22” model, shown with the PBS30BD Leg/Bass Drum Adaptor Kit. For information about the other sizes, Pearl Surdo Cases or the Adaptor Kit, please call Sam Ash Direct at 1-800-4SAMASH and ask for a drummer!

The patent-pending Leg/Bass Drum Adaptor Kit (PBS30BD), available separately, allows your Surdo to be played vertically like a floor tom or horizontally with a pedal like a bass drum. Pearl’s patented Air-Suspension feet provide maximum resonance and solid grip to minimize sliding on any floor surface. The durable yellow plastic covering with green and blue accents highlight the colors of Brazil.

You will need some good mallets to play the Surdo. Check out our list of “Things You Will Need”.
