The Meinl Bahia Aluminum Surdos are made to celebrate the Cuban/Jamaican style of music known as Samba-Reggae. Each surdo is cut shorter than its Rio counterpart and is typically worn much lower, on a belt. Meinl offers three sizes, including two great sounding fundos and a higher third-surdo. Aluminum shells allow the drums to be light weight and durable, perfect for festivals. This Bahia surdo also includes chrome-plated hardware, countersunk bolt heads, and a tuning key.
