The Light surdos by Gope are built with light constructional components. From a musical point of a view you could also call it a compact surdo. If you tried it once - you will never again let go of it! The principle of construction is easy: Save weight! If you dance a lot or your bloco does many choreographies in their shows, or if you like playing your surdo high up above your head doing show elements, or if you simply don't like carrying too heavy, then this ought to be your surdo!

Product overview

The tension brackets, the hoop and metal elements are all very light, the tension rods are slimmer and therefore lighter than usual. The seam of the body is welded. Shells with welded seams produce a higher and more audible part of shell sound due to creating more constant vibrations.

The surdo seems delicate, but does not lag behind its heavier competitors. Of course weight always goes together with stability in some way, but we are happy to tell you that even after many years of experience, Gope's light concept has proved to be successful.
