Meinl Aluminum Bahia Surdo, 20-In. Synthetic HeadMeinl
The Aluminum Bahia Surdo with 20-Inch Synthetic Head from Meinl channels samba and reggae music styles with a 16" tall aluminum shell and 20" replaceable synthetic head.
The aluminum shell produces a deep and thunderous attack with a full bass range that will give a powerful heartbeat to any samba or reggae setup. Since this surdo is cut shorter than the traditional Brazilian surdo and worn lower on a belt, aluminum is also a functional shell material because it creates a lightweight design that's convenient for extended play.
The Aluminum Bahia Surdo also features chrome plated hardward and counter sunk bolt heads for optimal strength and durability and 10 tuning lungs that can be precision-tuned to your liking using the included tuning key.
