This set of three nesting Samba drums includes a 10″ repinique and 14″ and 16″ Surdos. The set is great value and is the perfect addition to any samba band as well as a great starter set for clubs and small groups.

The drums  produce a vibrant, powerful tone and are perfect for street parades, parties and festivals, as well as additions to samba kits in schools and music institutions.

The set is manufactured in Brazil by Samba specialists Izzo. The drums are made from aluminium, and are sturdy and lightweight, making them great for playing on the move, or even whilst dancing. Foam rubber feet are included for each drum, so that the drums can be played standing on the floor.

The drums fit (nest) conveniently inside one another, making them easy to transport and store.

Traditionally in a samba band the surdos provide a solid backbeat whilst the repinique provides a more flashy rhythmic interest, often with syncopated and polyrhythmic patterns. In Samba ensembles you will also often find snare drums such as the Caixa, as well as hand percussion, including agogo bells, shakers and whistles.

Please note, these drums are not provided with straps or beaters. If required, they can be purchased separately from our Samba Beaters & Accessories range.

Product Information

What's included

  • 10″ repinique
  • 14″ surdo
  • 16″ surdo

How it's made

Our Surdos, Repiniques and Caixas are all made in Sao Paulo Brazil by Samba experts Izzo. The bigger drums are pressed from aluminium sheet.

Our Pandeiros and Tamborims are also made by Izzo in their Sao Paulo factory and the shells are injection moulded from ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), a high performance plastic that’s also used to make Lego, clarinets, amongst many other things.

Care & maintenance

Our Surdos, Caixa, Repiniques and tamborims are all genuine Brazilian instruments, made by specialists Izzo in Sao Paulo and they’ll give satisfaction for many years, if you treat them with care and follow the guidelines below.

Before or after each session

It’s good practice to wipe down all the instruments and beaters with a damp cloth and to check the tuning adjusters on each drum, to make sure there are no loose nuts. At the same time check the tension of each drum head. If a head seems slack, or if you find a loose adjuster, loosen all the adjusters on the drum, so that the’re just thumb tight, and then tighten them up using the supplied mini spanner in the sequence shown below.

This PDF document describes the sequence for tightening the tuning adjusters on Samba drums. It tells you how to tune a set of Izzo nesting surdos 14", 16" and 18" but the same principles can be applied to any drum with tuning adjusters.
