Comments about Meinl Surdo:
This is a review of a 16" x 24" aluminum Meinl Surdo. As a professional Samba drummer for the last 10 years I have played every type of commercially available surdo in the US. The overmanufactured rims of the Meinl are such that it can only fit a Meinl head, which are one ply, and virtually useless in real application.The variations in size on popular replacement drum heads can be up to 3/4". Tried with Remo, Evans,and Pearl heads and none fit. Bauer and Contemporanea, both Brasilian drum co.'s, have very limited distribution in the USA but I would exhaust every resource to find one before I bought another of these. Meinl's customer service dept. was nice but ultimatly not helpful. REALY, save yourself the headache and buy a real Brasilian drum, it will probably cost more and take alot more effort to get but you will not be stymied by poor manufacturing.
Comments about Meinl Surdo:
Meinl makes a poorly engineered drum. Unlike other surdo's the rims on Meinl are such that you can only fit it with Meinl heads. This is no good if you ever plan to use a different brand head (remo, evans, bauer and pearl heads DO NOT FIT IT) Spend the extra time and money to buy a real brasilian surdo.
